6:01 AM: Good morning!


Showery, breezy, cool – high only around 60..


26th SW – Final week for northbound 26th SW closure between Roxbury and Barton; King County has set the date for directions to switch – next Monday, October 4th, they expect to reopen northbound and close southbound for about a month.

25th SW & BartonMore county-led RapidRide prep work.

Delridge project – No major work this week, so no roundup, SDOT says.


Buses are on regular schedules today – except for the rerouting in RapidRide H Line work zones. Watch @kcmetrobus for word of canceled trips.

For ferries and water taxis, regular schedule today. Watch @wsferries for ferry updates.

Highland Park Way/Holden – Update – we asked SDOT about the camera angle again last week, and it’s been readjusted:

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? The @SDOTBridges Twitter feed will tell you. (1st Ave. South Bridge openings also are tweeted on @wsdot_traffic.)

     If the low bridge is supposed to be open until 8:00 a.m on weekends. WHY was it closed at 7:20 a.m. the last two Sundays.  And don’t use the excuse of Marine traffic! Go SDOT! 

Sorry, comment time is over.
