    Big backups northbound 1st Ave Bridge. All lanes merging into one, emergency repair?

      Nothing in the traffic advisories, except three maritime openings this morning.

      • Auntie September 25, 2021 (1:03 pm)

        We know that maritime traffic has the right of way,  but it sure would be nice if they could coordinate their openings with each other. The other day it opened at 9:20 and again at 10:30, so the backup from the 9:20 opening had barely cleared coming out of West Seattle when another one started. They say the openings only last about ten minutes, but the backups last wayyyyyy longer than that! And they have no interest in cooperating with mitigating the traffic – “we have the right of way and we exercise it any time we want … like it or lump it!” Maritime bullies.

Sorry, comment time is over.
