Downtown shooting and traffic delays

It’ll be a little more difficult than usual trying to get from here to there in downtown Seattle today because of the investigation into the shooting of a Metro bus driver.

It’s a fluid situation, but at the moment, here’s the best we could get from the Seattle Department of Transportation and King County Metro:

  •  Second Avenue between Union and Seneca streets is closed, according to the SDOT. However, both Union and Seneca themselves are open.
  • Although First and Third avenues remain open, drivers should expect congestion, SDOT warned.
  • Buses are “pretty much back to normal” according to King County Metro, although a stop at 3rd Avenue and Union Street remains closed. Buses along those routes are simply “doing a jog” around the closed intersection and then getting back on course in a block or two. Delays are expected.
