6:07 AM: Good morning!


Mixed forecast for today – with another 60-ish high..


26th SW – The closure between Roxbury and Barton is expected to shift to southbound this week. (Update: A texter confirms this is now in place.)

15th SW – Also as part of the RapidRide project, southbound 15th will be closed at Roxbury all week for underground utility work.

Delridge project – Some work remains but nothing big – we talked with SDOT on Friday and plan to publish that story tonight or tomorrow.


Remember that the fall “service change” happened Saturday, so this is the first weekday for various changes, including the return of Routes 22 and 113. Also keep in mind 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.


Tolls went up Friday.


559th morning without the West Seattle Bridge. Here are views of other bridges and routes:

Low Bridge: Automated enforcement cameras remain in use; restrictions are in effect 5 am-9 pm daily – except weekends; the bridge is open to all until 8 am Saturday and Sunday mornings. (Access applications are available here for some categories of drivers.)

West Marginal Way at Highland Park Way: (Note: If these next two cameras still appear frozen in date, please report to SDOT at 206-684-ROAD)

Highland Park Way/Holden:

The 5-way intersection (Spokane/West Marginal/Delridge/Chelan):

The 1st Avenue South Bridge (map):

For the South Park Bridge (map), here’s the nearest camera:

Are movable bridges opening for boats or barges? The @SDOTBridges Twitter feed will tell you. (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.

    Three cameras “unavailable”?  New record?

    • WSB October 4, 2021 (10:52 pm)

      All fixed as of our check just now, shortly before 11 pm.

  • Bus October 4, 2021 (8:07 am)

    How will the Barton/Roxbury work switching directions effect the buses?

  • West Seattle Mad Sci Guy October 4, 2021 (8:41 am)

    Three cameras show as under maintenance. Two others the latest image is from October 1st at night. 🤔

    I don’t if it is worth mentioning, but I have seen motorcycle cops doing additional enforcement on the lower bridge this past week. I am almost certain that you violate more than the bridge restriction when they pull you over, because you are also in a bus lane to get onto the lower bridge.

      Thanks. We definitely heard traffic enforcement radio calls last week citing addresses toward the north end of West Marginal.

    WSB. Would be curious to hear who/what got SPD  doing additional enforcement. Also curious if there’s already existing enforcement(camera) and a $75 fine can they make their tickets stick?

Sorry, comment time is over.
