WEATHER, ROAD WORK, TRAFFIC: Back-to-schools Tuesday watch

6:03 AM: Good morning! More sunshine today, and almost warm – could get into the 60s.


Second day for some Seattle Public Schools elementary students returning to in-person learning, so watch for school buses and other increased traffic by schools, as well as the reactivation of school-zone speed cameras. (Here’s the districtwide map of schools.)


Delridge project – The east end of Sylvan Way, just west of Delridge, could close as soon as today – we’ll be checking by late morning.

SW Yancy closure – The closure between Avalon and 28th because of the housing-construction project is expected to continue this week.

The Highway 99 tunnel is scheduled to be closed both ways Friday night to Saturday morning for its monthly inspection, with the NB direction staying closed until Monday morning.


Metro is on its regular schedule

The West Seattle Water Taxi is scheduled to have regular vessel M/V Doc Maynard back today
