6:01 AM Good morning!


Showers are in the forecast again, maybe with some snow as well as rain.


This Sunday (January 9th) is the first of four Sundays this month with low-bridge closures for pre-repair testing.


West Seattle and Vashon Water Taxi routes are back on their regular schedules.

Metro is on its regular weekday schedule. Watch @kcmetrobus for word of trip cancellations.

Ferries: WSF continues a two-boat schedule on the Fauntleroy-Vashon-Southworth run. Check here for alerts/updates.


652nd morning without the West Seattle Bridge. Traffic cams are working again:

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:

Highland Park Way/Holden:

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 (when they’re working) here; locally relevant cameras are also on this WSB page.

    Yea! All the cameras are working again. Hope they don’t get “flooded out” over the next couple of days.

    So I was just pondering, an assumption really, what it will be like the first day the ws bridge opens next summer.   To my knowledge sdot has not changed a thing on the routes under the bridge and the connection to I-5 so the traffic will go right back to what it was on the morning commute.  Trucks from harbor island coming up and rolling over two lanes to go north on 5.   It will be two years they could have had some foresight and low pressure to do something.   Shameful.     

Sorry, comment time is over.
