TRAFFIC, TRANSIT, WEATHER: Tuesday notes, 4 days until Memorial Day weekend

9:45 AM: Jeff notes in comments below that a stalled truck has jammed the eastbound West Seattle Bridge ramp to NB I-5, and sent this photo:


6:00 AM: Good morning. It’s Tuesday, May 23rd, four workdays to go until Memorial Day weekend (unless yours starts earlier!).


We’re moving back toward warmth. Today’s forecast: Partly sunny, high in the mid-60s. Sunrise was at 5:23 am; sunset will be at 8:50 pm.


Metro – Regular schedule, but trip cancellations are still possible.

Water Taxi – Continuing the spring/summer schedule, including late-evening runs Friday and Saturday nights.

Washington State Ferries‘ Triangle Route continues on the 2-boat schedule; sailing cancellations remain possible on short notice, 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 main camera:

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: – 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 a problem 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!

    I5 North ramp fully blocked by stalled semi truck just before northbound Beacon Hill merge.  Traffic has been stopped for 25 minutes so far.
