1st Avenue South BridgeSouthbound lane closures continue today:

*Through noon Monday (March 15th), two southbound lanes closed around the clock

*The entire southbound bridge is scheduled to close Sunday night (March 14th) and Monday night (March 15th), 9 pm-5 am both nights

Delridge project – Here’s the plan through today. Though it’s not mentioned there, a Metro alert suggests Saturday work at Delridge/Genesee – we’re trying to get more info.

West Seattle Neighborhood GreenwayAs noted Monday, work has begun on Phase 2, including 42nd SW south of The Junction.


Metro and the Water Taxi are on regular schedules – but tomorrow, note this Route 50 reroute during work at Delridge/Genesee.


354th morning without the West Seattle Bridge. Here’s how it’s looking on other bridges and routes:

    Ok so last night 3/11/21.  Southpark is not the way to go during the 2 lane closure on the 1st South Bridge.  I will be trying the 1st South Bridge SB tonight as everyone seems to be staying away from it and going So Park Bridge.  Lol

      Yesterday @3pm the wife was coming home from work, works on 1st Ave and Spokane it took her from there to just before Fidalgo 20 mins she then shot over to 4th Ave and it took her another 10 mins just to get to Michigan St finally headed for the So Park bridge and got home 60 mins longer than it usually takes her. So I think either way 1st or thru So. Park is a lose/lose situation.Work from home if possible!
