Viadoom: Time-lapse video shows traffic effects

[do action=”brightcove”]1236543458001[/do]

This time-lapse animation shows Google Maps traffic conditions last Friday compared with Monday, the first full weekday without the viaduct. Red and black lines show areas of greatest traffic congestion. The early morning commute is noticeably slower in many places on Monday, though the afternoon commute seems a bit worse on Friday, perhaps owing to the 7:30 p.m. closure of the viaduct that evening. Monday’s evening commute turned nasty earlier than usual, with stop-and-go traffic from Northgate to downtown just after 3 p.m.
