ROAD WORK, TRAFFIC, TRANSIT: Wednesday watch, 21st week of West Seattle Bridge closure

6:07 AM: It’s Wednesday, the 142nd morning without the West Seattle Bridge.


*Ongoing – major Delridge road work to get ready for the RapidRide H Line – here’s where they are focused this week. Remember that SW Genesee is scheduled to close between 25th and Delridge again this weekend, starting at 9 am Friday.

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

*Southbound Highway 99 tunnel is scheduled to close for maintenance 10:30 pm Thursday-4 am Friday.


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.

Check the @SDOTBridges Twitter feed for info about any of those bridges opening for marine traffic.

You can see all local traffic cams here; locally relevant cameras are also shown on this WSB page.

    WSB. Any updates on the talked about Fauntleroy Ave Redo?

    WSB. Thank’s for the update(and correct project name). Another question. Notice that there’s more people going southbound on W Marginal that are using the center turn lane to bypass the line of vehicles waiting for the left turn light at Holden. Last Friday and today saw car’s travelling at least a half mile in the turn lane. Can you give this info to SDOT and to SPD traffic squad. Also, is there a # we can call to register our concern’s, and hope for some enforcement.   

Sorry, comment time is over.
