Just in time for a busy weekend on the roads, there's a new way to get onto the West Seattle Bridge.

The Spokane Street Viaduct opened Friday morning, offering westbound drivers another way to get to West Seattle without taking Highway 99 or I-5.

The new option will also clear out some of the traffic on the lower Spokane Street Bridge.
