ROAD WORK, TRAFFIC, TRANSIT: First Monday of 2021

6:16 AM: It’s Monday, January 4th, the 287th morning without the West Seattle Bridge.


Delridge project: Here’s what’s planned this week, including the postponed SW Thistle closure east of Delridge starting as soon as today.


Metro – Back to regular schedule

Water Taxi – Back to regular schedule


West Marginal Way (substitute camera since the one at Highland Park Way has been out of alignment):

Highland Park Way/Holden:

The 5-way intersection (Spokane/West Marginal/Delridge/Chelan):

Restricted-daytime-access (open to all 9 pm-5 am, with camera enforcement starting 1/11/21) low bridge:

The main detour route across the Duwamish River, the 1st Avenue South Bridge (map) . Here are two cameras:

The other major bridge across the river – 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.)

To check for bridges’ marine-traffic openings, see the @SDOTBridges Twitter feed.

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

    Any information about the roadwork, lane changes on California Ave between Frontenac and Myrtle?  As  WSB must be aware the formally quiet stretch of California Ave south of Morgan Junction has become a major arterial.

      If you mean the big tank, that’s on my list. We stopped to look at the signs tonight in hopes they’d offer a hint but they don’t.

    I missed the Polar Bear Plunge, made a request and can’t believe I have been accommodated.

Sorry, comment time is over.
