Welcome to the first full week of Daylight Saving Time, 2013! One transit note – as announced by Washington State Ferries last night, Fauntleroy-Vashon-Southworth is on a two-boat schedule because Klahowya is in for repairs. Here are specifics from WSF:
For the two-boat schedule, the following sailings will leave from Fauntleroy to Vashon this morning: 6:50am, 8:25am and 9:05am sailings; from Vashon to Fauntleroy to Vashon the sailings will be at: 6:25am, 7:00am, 7:20am, 7:55am, 8:40am and 9:00am. From Southworth to Fauntleroy and Vashon will be 6:05 am (passengers only), 6:40 am, and 8:20 am. From Fauntleroy to Southworth, the sailings will be at: 7:45 am, and 9:05 am.

7:32 AM UPDATE: Just in from SDOT, some of the overhead messaging signs are still having trouble:
Some of the Variable Messaging Signs (VMSs), which provide travel times for drivers are dark again today coming out of West Seattle due to a malfunction in the time estimating system. The Seattle Department of Transportation is working to find and correct the problem.
9:13 AM UPDATE: Texter warns of “loose pillows” on the high bridge, and notes that’s extremely dangerous for motorcycle riders in particular. We’re hoping they have been reported to SDOT – any road hazard (including potholes) should be called in to 206-684-ROAD.
10:44 AM: The weeklong 2nd/Columbia bus-stop closure downtown – used by many headed back this way – came up in comments. Here’s the advisory:
From Monday, March 11 at 9:00 AM until Friday, March 15 at 2:00 PM, the bus stop westbound on Columbia St at 2nd Av will be closed due to construction.
During that time, board the RapidRide C Line and routes 21 Express, 55, 56, 57, 120 and 125 east of the closed stop, at the temporary stop southbound on 3rd Av just north of Columbia Street.
Bus service is not rerouted. All West Seattle service will continue to travel via Columbia St to the Alaskan Way Viaduct during this closure.
3:03 PM: Also just published as a standalone update – the Fauntleroy ferry run is back to 3 boats.
Sorry, comment time is over.
