ROAD CLOSURES, TRAFFIC, TRANSIT: Friday watch, 21st week of West Seattle Bridge closure

6:12 AM: It’s Friday, the 144th morning without the West Seattle Bridge.


*Starting at 9 am today – as part of the major Delridge road work to get ready for the RapidRide H Line – SW Genesee is scheduled to close between 25th and Delridge again through the weekend. Here’s the Metro Route 50 reroute plan.

*Also this weekend – more pavement repair in The Junction will close 44th SW between Alaska and Edmunds, Saturday and much of Sunday. Check here for bus reroutes.

*Next 1st Ave. S. Bridge northbound closure is Sunday night – 10 pm-5 am. (Here’s our update on the project.)


Here’s the 5-way intersection camera (Spokane/West Marginal/Delridge/Chelan):

Here’s the restricted-daytime-access (open to all 9 pm-5 am) low bridge:

The main detour route across the Duwamish River is the 1st Avenue South Bridge (map) . Here’s that camera:

The other major bridge across the river is the South Park Bridge (map). Here’s that camera:

Going through South Park? Don’t speed.

    WSB. Any word from SDOT if camera’s will be added to W Marginal?

      Good morning. They’ve long since said there are no plans for new cameras anywhere in the foreseeable future beyond the six added a few months ago.

Sorry, comment time is over.
