6:07 AM: Welcome to Monday, February 1st, the 315th morning without the West Seattle Bridge.


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

California and MyrtleThe sewer-repair project continues – if driving/riding on California, be careful going over the bumps on the northbound side.

Fauntleroy Way work this week – Thursday (February 4th), about two weeks of utility work starts on Fauntleroy between Alaska and Edmunds, as previewed here.

Tunnel closure – The Highway 99 tunnel is scheduled to close both ways Friday night.


Low Bridge: Fourth week for automated enforcement cameras, while restrictions are in effect 5 am-9 pm daily. (No stats yet.) Here’s a bridge view:

West Marginal Way at Highland Park Way:

Highland Park Way/Holden – note the 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:

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

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.

    WSB . Is it just me? Only the 1st S bridge shows on this post and when i go to the traffic page at least half won’t show. However, when i scroll down to the SDOT cameras they all pull up.

      As I suggested previously, it sounds to me like you’re having a caching problem. Everything is showing. Try a hard refresh if you can’t clear your browser cache.

Sorry, comment time is over.
