6:12 AM: Welcome to Monday, February 8th, the 322nd morning without the West Seattle Bridge.


Delridge project – The SW Thistle closure continues between Delridge and 20th. Here’s what to expect this week.

Fauntleroy Way work – The sewer repair, on Fauntleroy between Alaska and Edmunds as previewed here, is scheduled to be under way.


Low Bridge: Fifth week for automated enforcement cameras, while restrictions are in effect 5 am-9 pm daily. (Here’s an update on how it’s going.) Here’s a bridge view (note, it’s been experiencing intermittent trouble):

West Marginal Way at Highland Park Way:

Highland Park Way/Holden – with a new left-turn signal for northbound HP Way, turning to westbound Holden:

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

The main detour route across the Duwamish River, the 1st Avenue South Bridge (map):

The other major bridge across the river – the South Park Bridge (map). Here’s the nearest camera (note, it’s been experiencing intermittent trouble):

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

    What looks to be an accident between a flatbed truck and a SUV at the intersection of Chelan and W Marginal.  Westbound Marginal down to one lane at the intersection, so it was  a 30 minute commute from Highland Park Way to Chelan Cafe.  Hopefully they will have it cleaned up by 9pm.

      Thanks – no SFD dispatch so apparently no injuries.

Sorry, comment time is over.
