Good morning! As today’s traffic watch begins, we have several notes:
FERRY REPLACEMENT: WSF says the Evergreen State will replace Sealth on the Fauntleroy-Vashon-Southworth run starting today and while its capacity is comparable, the ES doesn’t have galley service or vending machines because it was recently mothballed and is being reactivated for this guest appearance, expected to last less than a week.
BLUE ANGELS: One flew in Sunday, the other six are due in around 12:30-1 pm today. I-90 bridge closures are Thursday-Sunday – here’s the schedule.
LIGHT RAIL FOR WEST SEATTLE SOMEDAY? SURVEY DEADLINE! Today is the deadline for feedback on the latest phase of Sound Transit‘s in-progress Long-Range Plan Update. Easiest way: This survey. (For more background, check out our earlier coverage.)
5:53 PM: Not sure yet about the westbound bridge slowdown – we’ve had two reports of police activity.
