Komo, Jeff Sweitzer, West Seattle Bridge discussed on News, Traffic and Weather
We are seeing some more congestion on certain corridors like eastbound. Anyway, eastbound Mercer street, not only are there. More drivers on downtown streets trying to get to the freeway, but on any given weeknight even after six o'clock it may take longer to reach. I five noticed that the those peaks have spread out. We have seen that in the morning. The west Seattle bridge will back earlier, and then it won't clear up to later. Call says, this may be the new normal at least until after the new tunnel opens and drivers get used to accessing that sue Romero. Komo news. Kind of moved along pretty quick to think about this coming Monday. It'll be one week to go for that tunnel to open. And how about the progress contractors are doing a couple of big concrete pours, including says state transportation department tunnel project manager, Dave sours paving for the southbound offramp to Royal Brome and for the south embankment choosy Dearborn off ramp. And that is our last major poor in terms of roadway surfaces. Sour says, they're still looking at seven to ten days after the tunnel opens to finish the northbound Dearborn offramp. It was the usual Friday light for the day. Fourteen morning drive. But Jeff Sweitzer with King County. Metro transit says they had a couple of trains that blocked buses for an hour at affected writers on route thirteen when twenty one twenty two and one twenty three and so we're moving towards rerouting some of those buses on a regular basis to avoid the kind of train related delays that we've been seeing otherwise Sweitzer says the buses have been able to get through traffic relatively smoothly.
