ROAD WORK, TRAFFIC, WEATHER: Back-to-school Monday watch, with Water Taxi schedule change

6:03 AM: Good morning! Another sunny day, slightly cooler.


Seattle Public Schools‘ spring break is over, and middle-/high-school hybrid learning begins today, with some students in classrooms in the afternoon, in addition to the elementary/preschool/special-education students for whom some in-person learning already has resumed.


Delridge project – A month or so of work at Delridge/Orchard has begun; here’s what else is planned this week.


Metro has increased the number of passengers allowed on buses.

Starting today, the West Seattle Water Taxi is on its spring/summer schedule – all day, 7 days a week, plus Friday and Saturday evenings.


392nd morning without the West Seattle Bridge. Here’s how it’s looking on other bridges and routes:

Low Bridge: 15th week for automated enforcement cameras; restrictions are in effect 5 am-9 pm daily – except weekends, when the bridge is now open to all until 8 am Saturday and Sunday mornings. (Read about other changes here.)

Here’s a low-bridge view:

West Marginal Way at Highland Park Way:

Highland Park Way/Holden:

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

And the 1st Avenue South Bridge (map):

For the South Park Bridge (map), here’s the nearest camera:

    Can anyone tell me why the southbound lanes of Delridge between Webster and Holden are being filled with asphalt instead of cement? This is a busy intersection and it seems like cement would hold up better, longer.

    Hallelujah! Better water taxi schedule will make getting downtown so much easier. Looking forward to visiting Pikes Place on a weekend now!

    So many perfect days over the past week to get out and try a bike commute to be prepared for traffic hellscape that is inevitable we more people start going back to work.

Sorry, comment time is over.
