6:12 AM: It’s Thursday, January 21st, the 304th morning without the West Seattle Bridge.


Low bridge closure – SDOT plans to close the low bridge 8 am-1 pm Saturday to all but emergency vehicles, so it can be inspected. Here are the bus-reroute plans:

C Line

Route 21

Route 50

Routes 120 & 125

Delridge project – The SW Thistle closure continues between Delridge and 20th. Here’s what else is in this week’s plan.

California and MyrtleThe sewer-repair project continues – if driving/riding on California, watch out for the bumps, even though the grade has been improved.

Sylvan Way work – Also be aware of the bumps left after last weekend’s drainage work until permanent road repairs are done.


Low Bridge: Second week for automated enforcement cameras, while restrictions are in effect 5 am-9 pm daily. Here’s a bridge view:

Going through South Park? Don’t speed. (Same goes for all the other detour-route neighborhoods, both the arterials and neighborhood streets!)

    Any power outage reports for West Seattle?

    Maybe due to work on Delridge??? Power is out near Whitecenter.

      Too early in the morning for that work, generally. But if this lasts another 10 minutes or so, we’ll go out looking for SCL crews.

Sorry, comment time is over.
