    Hi, The morning traffic on Highland/West Marginal to the 1st Ave bridge has become noticeably slower and more congested over the past month. Did something change on the roads, on ramps, traffic signals? I don’t see anything different on I99 or SODO streets that I use. thanks

      Any particular time?

      • CH April 29, 2022 (8:08 am)

        Hi, yes, the time I’m there is between 8:30 and 9:15.

          CH- I don’t know about other days, but on Tuesday, there was an accident taking up 2 of the northbound E Marginal lanes, just on the other side of the 1st Ave S bridge, where 1st Ave S splits off from E Marginal (in front of the Chevron). That really mucked things up.    

Sorry, comment time is over.
