WSDOT’s Seattle-area cameras temporarily going dark tonight
The Washington State Department of Transportation’s Seattle-area traffic maps and cameras will be out of service tonight as crews upgrade five miles of fiber optic system cables.
The cameras will be down from 8 p.m. to 3 a.m., WSDOT said in a release.
“The disruption will also limit engineers’ ability to remotely monitor traffic signals and confirm traffic incidents from the WSDOT traffic management center in Shoreline,” the release says.
The upgrade is part of a project that is widening the east side of state Route 520 and improving HOV lanes, according to WSDOT.
