6:03 AM: Good morning. It’s Thursday, December 8th.


More rain in the forecast, high in the 40s.


-No timeline yet for Metro to get those 126 buses back in service, so keep a close watch on channels such as @kcmetroalerts for trip cancellations and route suspensions. 6:50 AM: Metro just announced routes including 55, 56, 57, 121, and 125 are suspended again today. 11:19 AM: Metro now says it’s restored most PM commute service for the 55, 56, 57, and 125.

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

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


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

High Bridge – the view from its southwest end (when 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.

    Metro sent out an alert cancelling routes 55, 56, and 57 today.

    I ride the 125 bus.  Yesterday evening and this morning I received multiple alerts (from KC Metro alerts and One Bus Away) that my bus was cancelled.  Never the less it showed up both times.  Makes it difficult to know what information to trust.

      Yeah, usually you only have to make the hike  between Puget Ridge and Delridge on snow days. The cancellation definitely adds a lot of time (and cardio) to your commute.

      Just got message that some 125 trips were restored. (an earlier message had said that one was suspended for the day)

    It’s going to be chaotic for a while, I imagine. Now we’ve noted above that Metro says it’s restored most service on the 55, 56, 57, 125 for the PM commute.

Sorry, comment time is over.
