6:03 AM: Good morning! Cloudy, breezy forecast for today.


Delridge project – Delridge/Orchard work continues, plus repaving of Delridge Way’s north end.

35th/GrahamWork continues, with Graham closed on both sides of 35th.

SW Yancy east of Avalon – Still closed.

Home Zones – Speed-hump installation continues around the Highland Park, South Delridge, and Riverview areas.

West Marginal sidewalk – More work this weekend, on the west side of the road, north of the Duwamish Tribe Longhouse.


The West Seattle Water Taxi is on its spring/summer schedule – all day, 7 days a week, plus Friday and Saturday evenings, which means the free 773 and 775 shuttles are running daily too.

Metro is on a regular schedule. Even if you seldom ride, you’re invited to respond to this new survey.


409th morning without the West Seattle Bridge. Here’s how it’s looking on other bridges and routes:

Low Bridge: 17th 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.)

Here’s a low-bridge view:

    WSB. Do you know if the new camera angle at the 5 way(Chelan) is permanent and if so, why?

    • WSB May 6, 2021 (10:34 am)

      No, I don’t. Try 206-684-ROAD if there’s a problem – they often just don’t realize if there’s a problem.

    I recall seeing a sign or a post saying that Yancy was only going to be closed for 3 weeks. I guess they blew right by that timeline.

      We updated that previously, “delays with design.”

    Called it in at 12:20. Will see if they turn it around.

Sorry, comment time is over.
