6:03 AM: Good morning! It’s Wednesday, May 29.


Showers likely, high in the upper 50s.. Today’s sunrise was at 5:17 am; sunset will be at 8:57 pm.


*Beach Drive: Gas-pipeline work.

*SDOT’s Delridge pedestrian-bridge earthquake-safety project continues, with narrowing at Delridge/Oregon:


If you’re going through SODO tonight, note that the Mariners are home vs. Houston, 6:40 pm.


Metro today – Regular schedule; check for 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 last-minute changes. Use the real-time map to see where your ferry is. … Work at the Southworth terminal is continuing to close some lanes there.


Low bridge: Open.

Delridge cameras: Besides the one below (Delridge/Orchard), cameras are also at Delridge/Genesee, Delridge/Juneau, Delridge/Henderson, Delridge/Oregon, and video-only (so you have to go to the map), Delridge/Holden and Delridge/Thistle.

High Bridge – Here’s the main camera:

High Bridge – the view from its southwest end (when SDOT points the 35th/Avalon/Fauntleroy camera that way):

1st Ave. S. Bridge:

Highway 99: – northbound side at Lander:

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 open for vessel traffic. (Except the low bridge, for now; SDOT says it’s working on it.)

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!

    Does anyone know what’s happening on 55th Ave SW north and south of Dakota? There are SDOT no parking signs on both sides of the street on Saturday 6/1 for a “special event”.  I didn’t find anything on the SDOT construction page.

      I’ll try rooting around a bit later but in the meantime, the secret to reading “no parking” signs is to find the one sign every half block that has an extra piece of paper clipped to it. That should include a contact number and a little more about what’s supposed to be happening.

Sorry, comment time is over.
