Delridge projectHere’s this week’s plan, and progress reports on work zones like the intersections with Orchard and Thistle.

I-5 FYI – A year-long project on northbound I-5 through downtown starss tonight; WSDOT says work will be done at night to reduce impacts.


Regular schedules today.


420th morning without the West Seattle Bridge. Here’s how it’s looking on other bridges and routes:

Low Bridge: 19th week for automated enforcement cameras; restrictions are in effect 5 am-9 pm daily – except weekends, when the bridge is open to all until 8 am Saturday and Sunday mornings. (Access applications are now available for some categories of drivers.)

Here’s a low-bridge view:

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:

Are bridges opening for boats or barges? Check the @SDOTBridges Twitter feed.

    I actually noticed this on Sunday as I went to Burien from West Seattle.  I always go up Marine View Dr. from Lincoln Park.  When I got to the top I think it is about 102nd or so there were SDOT trucks out putting up new Speed Limit Signs that say 15 MPH till you get to 106th where most people make the turn.  Just thought I would throw this out here since our options for getting out of WS are still a concern.

      Well, it should be no surprise. People continue to drive recklessly, and SDOT has to intervene to ensure public safety.

    Reed,Then why do they not take care of the Roads?  Up in that area they are pitted, and all they ever do is patches.  Our roads and infaststructure are a joke in Seattle.  I have done quite a few Find It Fix it pot hole repairs along that stretch of road since it now gets a lot of use.  Pretty soon they are going to tell us we can’t drive on the roads at all with the way they keep putting up those (Walk Only Streets).

    Agree Reed. Lowering speed limits are the answer!!!

Sorry, comment time is over.
