TRAFFIC, WEATHER, TRANSIT: Christmas Eve-Eve Thursday

6:03 AM Good morning! Last day before what will be at least a three-day weekend for many.


Showery with gusty south winds at times – the forecast doesn’t bring in that cold and possible snow for a couple more days.


Metro is on its regular weekday schedule. Watch @kcmetrobus for word of trip cancellations. (Holiday plans: Tomorrow (Christmas Eve), Metro will be on a Sunday schedule; Christmas Day will be a regular Saturday schedule.)

Ferries and Water Taxi: WSF continues a two-boat schedule on the Fauntleroy-Vashon-Southworth run. Check here for alerts/updates. The Water Taxi is on its regular schedule. (Holiday plan: No Water Taxi service Friday or Saturday.)


639th 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.)

The 1st Avenue South Bridge (map):

South Park Bridge:

West Marginal Way at Highland Park Way:

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

Are movable bridges opening for vessels? The @SDOTBridges Twitter feed can tell you; 1st Ave. S. Bridge openings are also tweeted on @wsdot_traffic.

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

    Do you know if the low bridge will have weekend hours for Friday Christmas Eve?

      No, they do not change hours for holidays.

Sorry, comment time is over.
