With apocalyptic predictions of gridlock, the state and city have been urging people to prepare for a nine-day closure of the Alaskan Way Viaduct, which began today (see our previous post about biking during the closure).
Initial reports from the morning commute from West Seattle suggests that traffic on the high bridge was actually better than on a typical day for some of the morning commute, reports West Seattle Blog.
So, how was your bike commute this morning? Airport Way users, did you encounter worse traffic? Dexter?
Here’s a photo from Saturday’s walk on the Viaduct event, which was a lot of fun. Do we really need to keep the downtown section open for four more years? Do we really need a $2 billion tunnel? (oops, I said that word…)
