TRAFFIC, TRANSIT, WEATHER: Friday + weekend notes

6:03 AM: Good morning! It’s Friday, April 28th.


Warm forecast for today: Sunny, high in the low 70s. Sunrise was at 5:57 am; sunset will be at 8:17 pm.


Harbor Avenue has extensive no-parking signage for City Light work today and tomorrow. (We’re checking with SCL to see what the work’s about.)


Metro – Regular schedule, but trip cancellations are still happening, so watch for alerts (if you’re not signed up to get them, check channels like this).

Water Taxi – Now on the spring/summer schedule, which means this is the second week of added Friday/Saturday night runs.

Washington State Ferries‘ Triangle Route continues on the 2-boat schedule but with the chance of sailing cancellations, so check here for alerts/updates and see Vessel Watch for boats’ locations.


Delridge cameras: Besides the one below (Delridge/Henderson), cameras are also up at Delridge/Genesee, Delridge/Juneau, Delridge/Orchard, and Delridge/Oregon.

High Bridge – 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 – east-end vicinity:

1st Ave. S. Bridge – another route across the river:

Highway 99: – the northbound side at Lander.

MORE TRAFFIC CAMS: See all working traffic cams citywide here, most with video options; West Seattle and vicinity-relevant cameras are on this WSB page.

BRIDGE INFO: Check the @SDOTBridges Twitter feed to see if the city’s movable bridges are opening for vessel traffic.

If you see trouble on the bridges/streets/paths/bay, please text or call us (when you can do it safely, and after you’ve reported to authorities). Thank you!

    I witnessed a parking patrol person  ticketing cars yesterday that were parked LEGALLY, according to the sharpie-written dates and times (no parking, 4.28&29, 7 AM – 5 PM.)  This was at 5:36 PM.  If your car was ticketed while parked in this area, you should have a good case for dismissal if you take it to hearing.  I thought about stopping and confronting the person entering ticket data into their hand-held computer, but I was having a medical issue and just wanted to get home.

Sorry, comment time is over.
