ROAD WORK, TRAFFIC, WEATHER: Spring-break Friday watch, with Delridge/Orchard work beginning

6:07 AM: Good morning! Another sunny and warm day, with mid-70s forecast again after Thursday’s 75-degree record.


School’s out until Monday for Seattle Public Schools (and independent schools on the same calendar); middle-school and high-school part-time in-person classes start Monday.


Delridge project – Early update this week – Delridge/Orchard intersection work is expected to start today and last about a month.


Metro is due starting tomorrow to increase the number of passengers allowed on buses.

The West Seattle Water Taxi changes to its spring/summer schedule starting Monday – all-day, 7 days a week.


389th morning without the West Seattle Bridge. Here’s how it’s looking on other bridges and routes:

Low Bridge: 14th 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 ahead, here.)

    Can anyone tell me why the southbound section of Delridge between Webster and Holden has been paved with asphalt instead of cement? All the rest of the work has been done in cement.

Sorry, comment time is over.
