6:00 AM: Good morning. It’s Wednesday, September 28th.


Here’s the forecast – rain expected, high in the mid-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 will 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. (We didn’t get to check Tuesday if it had started yet.)

-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.

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, 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.

If you see trouble on the roads/paths/water, please text or call us (when you can do so safely) – 206-293-6302.

    So the many times I have crossed the bridge so far it has been light traffic.  This morning it was pretty light but there is that one person who insist on Riding the whole way down the Bus Lane.  Really?????

      I think it was Heather Marx that said don’t try to speed or use the bus lane, etc because the bridge would be patrolled by SPD. We need officer cool shades to address the bus lane scofflaw, Stat!

        Love when Officer Cool Shades would be at the bottom pulling over vehichles who were riding in the bus lane.  They could not go anywhere when it was bumper to bumper traffic and he would have five people pulled over. Lol
