ROAD WORK & TRAFFIC WATCH: Thursday 9/17 notes

6:16 AM: It’s Thursday, the 178th morning without the West Seattle Bridge.


*Delridge project: Here’s the latest update, with closures the next two weekends.

*Westwood Village parking lot: Work continues on the SW Trenton side of the center. If you have to go to the post office, use that entrance – but don’t use it to try to get anywhere else at WWV.


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.


Metro – Routes 125 and 128 are now stopping at South Seattle College (WSB sponsor) on Puget Ridge. Otherwise – still reduced service and distancing, with some changes starting this Saturday (September 19th).

Water Taxi – Still on its “winter” schedule, with the 773 and 775 shuttles running – see the schedule here.

Trouble on the roads/paths/water? Let us know – text (but not if you’re driving!) 206-293-6302.

    Any idea why we have had no parking signs for two weeks, yet no road work on beach drive in the 4200 block?

      Is there signage? At least one sign every half block or so has to have an explanatory sheet attached to it, which usually has the reason as well as a contact #. The red and white signs themselves also often have an explanatory source toward the bottom such as “Infrasource” or “AAC Concrete” (which means it’s a city project).

    Delridge construction crews seem to have knocked out water in the north Delridge neighborhood

    So much traffic on low bridge. Seems like many people feel entitled to use it when SPD not actively enforcing restrictions. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
