TRAFFIC ALERT: Crash at 35th and Morgan

2:52 PM: Thanks for the tip: Avoid 35th SW and SW Morgan for a while – a crash involving at least 4 vehicles has blocked part of 35th just south of Morgan. We’ve just checked out the scene – no serious injuries so no SFD callout.

2:58 PM: The cause is under investigation; police are directing traffic through the scene, and tow trucks are reported to be on the way. Added photos from the scene, which is somewhat spread out.

6:58 AM: No traffic incidents or transit alerts in our area so far.

REMINDER: Tomorrow is the last day of school before a week of spring break begins for Seattle Public Schools, as well as Highline Public Schools to the south and Vashon to our west.

8:40 AM: If you’re headed toward the bridge via Fauntleroy, SFD is on the scene of a car fire in the 4100 block.

8:51 AM: Fauntleroy looks OK via the SDOT cameras and it’s only a one-engine callout. The eastbound bridge, however, is not looking so great, thanks in part to a residual backup from an earlier incident near the Delridge onramp. Cleared but that of course is no instant fix.

TRAFFIC ALERT: Signal trouble at 35th/Henderson

Commenters reported this during our morning-traffic coverage – and now we’ve just received e-mail that it’s happening still/again: The signal at 35th SW and SW Henderson is flashing red. Judy says that’s backing things up, as we’re into the evening commute. We’re checking to see if it’s on SDOT’s radar.
