TRAFFIC, TRANSIT, WEATHER: Friday and beyond

9:09 AM: The encampment cleanup at 1st and Cloverdale is affecting traffic, we’re told – avoid the area.

Earlier:

6 AM: Good morning. It’s Friday, March 29, and the Mariners have another home game tonight (6:40 pm), so if you’re traveling through the stadium zone, be aware.

WEATHER + SUNRISE/SUNSET TIMES

Possible morning showers, then clearing, high in the mid-50s. Sunrise will be at 6:52 am, sunset at 7:35 pm.

SPRING BREAK

This is the last day before spring break for parochial schools, which are off next week, as are Highline Public Schools. (Seattle Public Schools and most secular independent schools are out the week of April 8.)

TRANSIT NOTES

Metro today – Regular schedule; check advisories here. One day now until the twice-yearly “service change” takes effect Saturday; here’s our look at West Seattle changes. (And if you’re taking the bus to/from the baseball game, here’s info.)

Water Taxi today – Metro will run the West Seattle Water Taxi late again tonight, for the Mariners’ opening homestand. Check the real-time map if you need to see where the boat is.

Washington State Ferries today – The usual 2 boats on the Triangle Route. Check WSF alerts for changes. Use the real-time map to see where your ferry is.

SPOTLIGHT TRAFFIC CAMERAS

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

MORE TRAFFIC CAMS: All functioning traffic cams citywide are here; West Seattle and vicinity-relevant cameras are on this WSB page.

BRIDGE INFO: The @SDOTBridges feed on X (ex-Twitter) shows whether the city’s movable bridges are opening for vessel traffic.

If you see a problem on the bridges/streets/paths/water, please text or call our hotline (when you can do that safely, and after you’ve reported to authorities if they’re not already on scene) – 206-293-6302. Thank you!

    FYI: The school zone speed cameras on 35th are taking pictures even though the lights are not flashing.
