TRAFFIC, TRANSIT, WEATHER: Thursday info, with East Marginal update

7:55 AM: Texter reports Sylvan Way crash.


6:01 AM: Good morning! It’s Thursday, March 21.


Partly cloudy, rain at times, high in the mid-50s. Sunrise will be at 7:08 am, sunset at 7:24 pm.


From SDOT:

Last week, we started moving materials and equipment onto the project site to prepare for the start of major construction in the coming weeks. This week, we are starting early work at S Horton St that includes railroad track removal, locating utility lines, and starting storm drain work. To complete this work, S Horton St between E Marginal Way S and SR 99 is closed and a detour is in place. For more information about the project and what to expect during construction, please visit the East Marginal Way Corridor Improvement Project website.

That’s where you’ll find full details, including maps, of closures and detours.


Metro today – Regular schedule; check advisories here.

Water Taxi today – Regular schedule. 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.


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

High Bridge – the main camera:

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 us (when you can do that safely, and after you’ve reported to authorities if they’re not already on scene). Thank you!
