WEATHER, TRAFFIC, ROAD WORK: First full day of summer

6:12 AM: Good morning! Welcome to the first full day of summer, which arrived at 8:31 pm Sunday. It’s also the first day of summer vacation for Seattle Public Schools. As for the weather, more sunshine! Today should look a lot like Sunday – Anjie Nelson-Wally sent this photo from Lincoln Park, looking toward the Fauntleroy ferry dock:


Delridge projectHere’s this week’s preview, with the Delridge/Henderson/Barton intersection remaining closed on the east side.

SW YancyOne last delay, but it’s supposed to reopen west of 28th tomorrow, after almost three months.


Regular schedule for buses and ferries.

(Watch @kcmetrobus for word of bus cancellations, @wsferries for major WSF changes.)


455th morning without the West Seattle Bridge. Here are the views of other bridges and routes:

Low Bridge: 24th 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 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 draw/swing bridges opening for boats or barges? See the @SDOTBridges Twitter feed. The 1st Ave. S. Bridge openings also are tweeted on @wsdot_traffic.

See all local traffic cams here; locally relevant cameras are also on this WSB page.

    Hello, concerning the Delridge Project.I’m wondering if anyone knows whether or not all of Delridge will have that black top surface when they finish?  Like we see on other redone streets in West Seattle.  Example: Avalon way between 35th & Genesee St?Thanks!Miguel

      Hi – totally rebuilt (with concrete) roads often stay that way (see for example 35th south of Avalon) but you can see the paving plans section by section linked from the project website
      I’ll ask too.

    Throughly surprised if Yancy opens up tomorrow. I walked by there yesterday and saw a 10×2 large section of concrete missing and not poured in.

      I’m publishing a separate story as soon as I get over for visual confirmation but just got a note from Transitional Resources that it has reopened. Should be there in about 15 minutes …

Sorry, comment time is over.
