6:01 AM: Good morning! It’s Wednesday, May 22.


Chance of rain, then clearing, high in low 60s.. Today’s sunrise was at 5:23 am; sunset will be at 8:49 pm.


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

*Sound Transit is scheduled to be drilling on 41st SW in the east Junction – here’s the alert info.


One more mention of what Bill pointed out: The new crossing at West Marginal/17th/Marginal Place is active.


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. … Starting this week, work at the Southworth terminal is closing some lanes there for about 3 weeks.


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 that.)

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!

    Bike to school day. Be aware of school bike trains throughout the neighborhoods this morning.

      Be aware and BE PATIENT! I saw one big group work their way slowly up the street. And several cars having a hard time being patient. It isn’t going to take the kids that long to clear the street, take a “chill pill”, give them a chance, and relax.

        Sorry we didn’t have that, didn’t hear from any school groups this year or we’d be out covering them!

Sorry, comment time is over.
