6:03 AM: Good morning, First a reminder – if you have Tuesday solid-waste pickup, be sure it’s out – crews started at 6 this morning instead of the usual 7, because of the weather. As for that, it finally got back into the 60s overnight, but another warmer-than-normal day is expected. No more triple-digits, though.


Buckled pavement – 36th SW was closed at Oregon for a sinkhole, and 40th/Holly has a trouble spot too.

Delridge projectStation work as well as road work is in this week’s plan.


Regular schedule for buses and ferries, though Metro asks for patience as they readjust post-record heat. (We’ll talk about the upcoming holiday weekend starting tomorrow.)

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


463rd morning without the West Seattle Bridge. Here are the views of other bridges and routes:

Low Bridge: 25th 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.)

West Marginal Way at Highland Park Way:

Highland Park Way/Holden:

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. (1st Ave. South Bridge openings also are tweeted on @wsdot_traffic.)

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

    Does anyone know what was happening on 35th just north of Brandon this morning? Fire trucks were blocking the northbound lanes.  I hope no one was badly hurt, whatever it was.

      A bicyclist was hurt. Not life-threatening. However, we don’t know yet whether it was a collision or the rider taking a spill. Got there too late to ask police; I have messages out now to check.

    There’s sewer work on Thistle at 37th right now.  They had the whole street shut down for the initial deployment.  I’m not sure what it looks like now, but definitely a lot of equipment in the roadway.

Sorry, comment time is over.
