403rd morning without the West Seattle Bridge. Here’s how it’s looking on other bridges and routes:

Low Bridge: 16th 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. (Access applications are now available for some categories of drivers.)

    It would be nice to see that Highland Park camera adjusted to actually capture the traffic on the road, not the (usually empty) intersection.

      That intersection will get better communication infrastructure enabling a better camera system later this year.

    Two bus drivers without masks on today. Is that the new policy for vaccinated drivers?

    • WSB April 30, 2021 (7:58 pm)

      Don’t think so. Please file a complaint with Metro.

Sorry, comment time is over.
