6:03 AM: Good morning. It’s Tuesday, October 18th.


Mostly sunny, mid-60s today, and forecasters still expect rain to arrive by Friday night.


Overnight work on the West Seattle Bridge tonight (lane closure) and tomorrow night (full westbound closure). PM UPDATE: SDOT says this has been canceled and will be rescheduled.

-The SPU project closing the east end of Sylvan Way appears to have begun.


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

Still a 2-boat schedule for WSF’s Triangle Route (check here for alerts/updates).

The West Seattle Water Taxi is now on its fall/winter schedule (still daily, all dayparts, but no late Friday/Saturday runs).


High Bridge – here’s the camera at the top.

High Bridge – the view from its southwest end.

Low Bridge: Open to all.

1st Ave. S. Bridge: Still showing this for those finding it more convenient.

Highway 99: Here’s the northbound side at Lander.

All 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.

    Anyone know when they are going to finish painting the lines on Admiral Way since they resurfacing looks complete? Also there are no lines where we all merge together from Avalon and Admiral Way traffic to the on-ramp.

    There’s an inconsistency re: bridge lane closures. This post mentions it closing tonight (Tues.) but the press release on your other page mentions Wed. night/Thurs. morning. May want to correct/clarify. Thx!

    So the bridge will not be closed tonight Tuesday Oct. 18th?  

    • WSB October 18, 2022 (4:55 pm)

      The bridge was not scheduled for closure tonight. Lane closures, as noted here and in the original notice I published last night.The actual westbound full closure was Wednesday night. That’s all been canceled for now, according to SDOT.

Sorry, comment time is over.
