7:04 AM Texter reports a crash on the eastbound bridge by 1st Ave S exit.


6:01 AM: Good morning. It’s Monday, October 31st, Halloween.


After a rainy night, a showery and windy day is forecast, high in the 50s.


-Watch out for standing water on the streets and bridges; we had one late-late-night report of it on the westbound bridge, especially on the exit to Admiral. If you encounter an especially bad spot, report it to SDOT at 206-386-1218.

Halloween: Trick-or-treaters will be out tonight, as will visitors at neighborhood attractions. Also note that the city has granted some block-party permits; we’ve been notified of one, California SW between 102nd and 104th, 6-10 pm.

Two continuing closures: The outer southbound lane on West Marginal Way between 17th SW and the Duwamish Longhouse … The east end of Sylvan Way.


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 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 (if SDOT points the 35th/Avalon/Fauntleroy camera that way).

Low Bridge: Open to all.

1st Ave. S. Bridge: The alternate route.

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

All functional city traffic cams can be seen here, most 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.

    Down by Costco on 4th Ave. lots of standing water in the right hand lane although it looks like it goes almost all the way cross to the left hand lane as well. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
