6:55 AM: Just headed east on the high bridge and noticed the port-bound trucks on the westbound side are backed up to parallel with the 4th exit. Traffic is OK both ways, though.

8:47 AM: We’re headed back the other way, via the south end, and noted NB 509 is backed up all the way to Burien – a crash at the 1st Ave. S. Bridge (NB 99) has cleared per WSDOT, but that backup’s going to take a while to subside.

    Wow that one camera on the Delridge and Henderson is seemingly pointed right into those apartment windows. Seems less than ideal. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
