TRAFFIC/TRANSIT TODAY: New Year’s Eve-Eve on the move; sneak peek at first new Water Taxi

(WS high/low bridges and Highway 99 views; more cams on the WSB Traffic page)

Good morning! Second-to-last day of 2014:

*Again today, Metro is on the “reduced weekday” schedule.

*This is the second day of SDOT‘s planned three-day one-lane closure on California Way, between Harbor and Ferry, for retaining-wall work.

*Bonus: Check out the first of the two new Water Taxis – we spotted the photos in a small, unannounced slideshow on the Water Taxi website early today:

Go there to see more images of the Sally Fox, which will be on the Vashon run when it’s ready to go in 2015; right behind it will be the Doc Maynard, on the West Seattle run. Talking with Greg Lerner of the King County Transportation Department‘s Marine Division earlier this month, we had asked for images of the under-construction Water Taxis, but hadn’t heard/seen anything until stumbling onto this.

11:43 AM: We are getting reports of water on the road along Admiral north of the bridge. Checking on the cause.

    There are police cars on the eastbound bridge near the Delridge onramp.

    I’m on a 21 that’s been stuck at a railroad crossing in SODO for 20 minutes. The train hasn’t even been moving for most of that.

    I hope the new sale tax increase for additional buses will end reduced weekday service.

Sorry, comment time is over.
