6:03 AM: Good morning. It’s Wednesday, December 7th.


High in the 40s, cloudy with a chance of rain as well as some possible sun.


-If you’re using Metro, keep a closer watch on channels such as @kcmetroalerts for trip cancellations – as reported here last night, more than 100 buses had to be taken out of service.

-The West Seattle Water Taxi is on its regular schedule this morning.

-WSF’s Triangle Route is too – check here for alerts/updates.


SDOT crews are continuing speed-hump wrk on Harbor and Alki Avenues. As of last night, four of the six planned sets are in place – one in the Seacrest vicinity is shown in the SDOT photo above.


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

    All 56/57 buses from 6:40-7:30 have been cancelled. I need to figure out how to get to work.

      56/57 are always the first to get cut. That’s what pushed me into biking to work. It got so old standing out there in the dark and rain waiting 15, 30, up to 45 minutes for buses that are “on time” but not actually in service.

      Same with the afternoon commute. I am seriously think of working remotely until these mechanical issues are resolved. Unreliable bus service is more than an inconvenience for me. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
