West Seattle traffic alert: Reminder for Fauntleroy ferry users

Traffic has been decidedly difficult at times since the Barton Pump Station upgrade project started north of the Fauntleroy ferry terminal, with closures including one toll booth and a dock lane at times. But north of the dock, the usual rules still apply, as Washington State Ferries reminded drivers with this advisory:

Customers lining up at Fauntleroy should note that the ferry queue continues along Fauntleroy Way at the gas station at the north end of Lincoln Park; it does not go down 47th Ave. SW toward the beach. Please also note that line cutting is against state law and subject to a fine of up to $124. We ask that customers be respectful of others waiting in the queue. You can report line-cutters by calling 877-764-HERO. All violators are logged and receive a warning letter. Multiple violations result in further action.

    Line cutters suck!

    The other day I was going north on Fauntleroy behind a taxi just as the ferry was loading. He spun a U turn in the middle of the road and cut in line right by the park in front of A LOT of people. Is there a special rule for taxi’s?

    To complicate things even more, starting as early as Monday, Jan.21, the north toll booth will be closed 24/7 until May 15 for this construction project.
    (T-no, taxi’s do not get special privileges. A fine example of violating of the line cutter law.)

Sorry, comment time is over.
