West Seattle Blog… | TRAFFIC, TRANSIT, WEATHER: Welcome to Wednesday

06:03: Hello; welcome to Wednesday June 29th.


Today’s forecast much like yesterday – cloudy, chance of showers, mid 60s to low 70s (Tuesday’s high was 65, 26 degrees cooler than a day earlier).


Subway buses follow their regular schedule on weekdays; look @kcmetroalerts for the word of trip reroutings/cancellations.

The West Seattle Water Taxi is on his regular schedule. (here is the program it will take place on July 4 next Monday.)

Ferries: WSF is continuing on the two-boat program for Fauntleroy-Vashon-Southworth – and WSF says that is unlikely to change for several months. Check here for alerts/updates.


829th morning without the West Seattle Bridge.

Low bridge: Automated application cameras continue to be used; restrictions are in effect from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily – except weekends; the bridge is open to everyone until 8 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday mornings. (Access the applications are available here for certain categories of drivers.)
