Freeway Fright ’07: You saw it here first but …

wtrtxi.jpg… you should see it again. Nine days after a sharp reader helped us bring you first word of the Elliott Bay Water Taxi‘s increased capacity, extra early-AM run, and extra shuttle during the looming Freeway Fright ’07, King County posted another official alert about it today. If you still aren’t completely dialed into the I-5 challenges ahead, here’s the WSDOT lowdown; here’s the city’s plan; here’s our newly enhanced traffic-cams-n-more page (we’ll be adding more including the I-5/Spokane Street cam since that will be the epicenter of the Aug. 10-29 fun).

  1. That’s great, but why still have the 2 hour refueling break? People still need to take the water taxi between 9am and 11am. They don’t have the refueling break during the weekends, why on the weekdays?

  2. The refueling break sucks but I am told it is part of the contract with Argosy and they need it for operational and staffing reasons.

  3. I can’t help but join the chorus! The refueling break is a deal breaker for me. I frequently need to be in town by 11AM.
