ROAD WORK, TRANSIT, TRAFFIC: Thursday 11/5 watch

Delridge project: 23rd SW is closed at Delridge this week. The other current work is detailed here.


West Marginal Way/Highland Park Way:

Highland Park Way/Holden:

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 are two cameras:

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

Going through South Park? Don’t speed. (Same goes for the other detour-route neighborhoods, like Highland Park, Riverview, and South Delridge.)

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.


MetroFare collection has resumed.


The West Seattle run remains on its weekdays-only schedule. Note that there’s no service next Wednesday, for Veterans Day.

    The link you are providing for the SDOT bridge twitter feed hasn’t been updated since the end of October

    SPU was out this morning replacing the fire hydrant that got knocked over on Alki ave by the drunk driver.

Sorry, comment time is over.
