West Seattle, Washington
The approach to the high bridge has a lighted sign reading ICE ON BRIDGE … perhaps they should simply change it to STAY HOME OR ELSE.
From 5am-7:30am I switched back and forth between the three local news channels hoping to hear about the condition of the WS bridge. Neither channel mentioned it. They act like it this heavily traveled road does not exist.
I simply don’t understand why the WS bridge isn’t one of the first places to be sanded/de-iced…Greg Nickels being a local boy certainly doesn’t help us much, does it? I’m sure that the major thoroughfares in and out of other city areas are getting the attention they need…yes, indeed, we are like the poor cuzzins over here. Luckily I work at home, and don’t have to go out there, but I really feel for the buses and people who do…
…actually Q13 did a wonderful job of covering the WS bridge, Lilly Chang was posted at 35th and Fauntleroy giving updates every 15 mins or so (well atleast between 6am to 8am), she even had some official from SDOT saying that they had been applying de-icer since early yesterday afternoon. I’m usually not a fan of Q13 news but with the best WS/snow choas coverage I’ve seen, I might be now.
It sure felt like there was a “Stay Home” sign posted on the bridge – the Junction was hopping today, every eatery was crowded and busy.
Q13 always has good coverage of West Seattle.
Thanks for the tip, folks. I usually watch channel 4 and then check 5 and 7, but I will definiatly start checking Q13 for WS problems.
Sorry, comment time is over.
