Traffic Advisory - 9:15 am

The West Seattle High Level Bridge and Spokane Street Viaduct remain open westbound, however, motorists must exit prior to I-5 as an accident on the Columbia Street on-ramp is blocking northbound I-5. The Alaskan Way Viaduct is bare and wet, a good alternate to NB I-5 at this time. SDOT crews are continuing to treat in-bound major arterials which are open; they are also maintaining streets surrounding hospitals. Many sloped streets and side streets are not passable and have been closed. As the day progresses, SDOT will switch its efforts to treating major arterials heading out of Seattle.

SDOT advises if you don't have to drive, stay at home until road conditions improve.
