TRAFFIC/TRANSIT TODAY: Tuesday Election Day edition

(Live view from the only WS Bridge camera currently in operation; see other cameras on the WSB Traffic page)
7:05 AM: No big problems reported on the routes from/through/to West Seattle so far. The West Seattle Bridge camera’s back, as you’ll note above; SDOT tells us the other one, which points west, is still awaiting parts. And speaking of the bridge, via Twitter, Dave reports it’s “very slow.”

5:54 PM: The 911 log reports a crash on the westbound bridge, by the Admiral exit. No further details, but we have to head that way ourselves shortly, so might have a firsthand report.

    Light bridge traffic on the eastbound 57 at 7:30 am. Probably thanks to Barack Obama ;)

    Yesterday there was some confusion on my 116 bus about where the bus stops between the Fauntleroy Ferry and Morgan. The 116 bus almost passed a couple of passengers waiting by the High Point Elementary school bus stop, but the rapid ride honked it’s horn and made the 116 stop. The almost passed passengers claimed that the 116 always picks them up. The 116 driver insisted that it’s not one of his stops one passenger agreed with him another passenger (and myself) stated that we thought the 116 was supposed to stop at all C Line stops (between the ferry and Morgan).

    So, what stops is the 116 supposed to make between the ferry and Morgan? It seems as if even the bus drivers are unclear.

    Along those lines I’ve noticed that the bus stop on the Fauntleroy ferry dock says 116/118/119. Do the 118 & 119 really stop there and pick up passengers when they unload the ferry? If so that may be another good option for people heading downtown.

    From what I’ve seen the few times I’ve taken the 118 express from Vashon, it does stop on the dock after getting off the boat. I’m assuming it’s the same for the 119.

    I’ve asked a couple of drivers (morning 116 and evening 119) if the 116/118/119 are supposed to make the stops between the ferry and Morgan. Both drivers seems to think that they don’t. The bus stop signs still don’t show those routes, but the schedule map seems to indicate they do make those stops and the “next stop” signs on the buses were recently updated (a week or two ago) to show those stops.

    Tara, LB, I’ll see if I can get an answer in the next day or so.

Sorry, comment time is over.
