6:00 AM: Good morning. It’s Thursday, September 29th.


Here’s the forecast – chance of rain, high in the upper 60s.


Metro buses are on their regular schedules; watch @kcmetroalerts for trip cancellations/reroute alerts.

No changes in ferries (check here for alerts/updates) or West Seattle Water Taxi service (which will continue at all-day/every-day levels through fall and winter).


Seattle Public Utilities is scheduled to soon close Sylvan Way between Home Depot’s eastern access and SW Orchard for a “natural drainage” project that will take about two weeks. This notice explains. (As of Wednesday afternoon, this hadn’t started yet.)

-In South Park, a drainage project is closing S Holden St between W. Marginal Way S. and 5th Ave S. weekdays through October 14th.

-Just south of the city-limit line, King County is scheduled to continue repaving Myers Way between 99th and 108th.


High Bridge – here’s the lone reactivated camera atop the span.

Low Bridge: Open to anyone who wants to use it (note: where the camera is turned is under SDOT control).

1st Ave. S. Bridge: For those still finding it more convenient.

Highway 99: Whichever bridge you’re using to get to it, here’s a look at northbound traffic on 99 at Lander.

All currently functional city traffic cams can be seen here (new URL), many with video options; West Seattle and vicinity-relevant cameras are also on this WSB page … Are movable city bridges opening for vessels? Check the @SDOTBridges Twitter feed.

    I noticed when I was going east on the West Seattle Bridge towards Beacon Hill today about 8:30am that there was quite a back up for the exit to I-5 north. Reminded me of the old days of backed up traffic!

      Traffic was light eastbound over the bridge at 9:15AM, the backup to go northbound on I-5 started at the 4th Avenue exit ramp.  Took about 20 minutes to go north past Freeway Park, then smooth sailing to Shoreline after that.  Just like I remember it.

Sorry, comment time is over.
