Traffic Advisory: Update - West Seattle Bridge westbound

Only the left inside lane is open so far on the West Seattle Bridge westbound.Crews are working to clear away construction materials that are still spread across all the other westbound lanes. Looks to be possibly another half hour before it is open on all lanes. Traffic is backed up to I-5 and onto I-5 southbound. Northbound traffic on I-5 is not yet backed up; traffic is beginning to back up onto the southbound lanes of SR 99/Alaskan Way Viaduct. E Marginal Way S also looks very congested in the area.

The lower level Swing Bridge was briefly closed for an electrical malfunction and re-opened at 2:45pm.
