TRAFFIC, TRANSIT, WEATHER: Pre-Thanksgiving Monday

6:03 AM: Good morning! It’s Monday, November 21st – three days until Thanksgiving.


Morning clouds, afternoon sun, high near 50. Still looks like serious rain is due to return Tuesday.


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

-The West Seattle Water Taxi is running its fall/winter schedule (still daily, all dayparts, but no late Friday/Saturday runs). Holiday note: NO Water Taxi service Thursday or Friday.

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


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: Or nearby, depending on where SDOT points the camera.

1st Ave. S. Bridge: The south 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 take Cloverdale through South Park, its closed for police activity.  Just FYI.

      Nothing on the regular police or fire logs for that area this morning so might have been a warrant situation.

        Yeah, I checked the SPD twitter/ blotter too, to see what that was all about, and couldn’t find details either.   I wasn’t at the blocked intersection but definitely saw all the police cars and lights up ahead.  It was around 10th & Cloverdale?  I assume the buses were able to detour…

        • WSB November 21, 2022 (11:02 am)

          Whatever it was, they just announced a short time ago that the road had reopened, so it was no quick in/out. I’m asking SPD.

            Any update?

          • WSB November 22, 2022 (2:03 am)

            I never got a reply. Asking again in the morning, it’s all I can do.

    At 6:30     this morning it looked like a laundry basket in the left hand lane of the WS Bridge just before the walking overpass.  Also after you crest over the hill climbing the WS bridge off in the right hand land two cars were stopped with their hazzards on.  Not sure if they hit each other as they were both out of their cars looking at the cars. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
