TRAFFIC ALERT: Fauntleroy Way backups again today

(“Live” view from WSDOT camera looking northbound on Fauntleroy Way)
Thanks to SmokeyCretin and Erin for reports that southbound Fauntleroy Way has been backing up again this afternoon from the ferry dock as far as The Kenney (WSB sponsor). Various complicating factors today: As mentioned in our morning traffic/transit report, there’s a swim meet at Colman Pool again today (tomorrow too, so it’s closed to the public); also, the Vashon Island Strawberry Festival starts tonight, meaning more westbound traffic. So if you don’t absolutely have to use that stretch of road, don’t. Also keep in mind the WSF alert for next Monday and beyond, when they’ll be downsizing to a 2-boat schedule.

    If you head over to the Strawberry festival you really should consider walking on and catching the school bus from the end of the dock up to town. Check their website for details on when the bus runs and the cost. I think it is a dollar to ride and you’ll not end up having to walk a mile or two to the festival from where you can park.

    Yes, what Jordan said. the one time we went, we had some older relatives with us, so we drove. but, we ended up having to park so far away… ended up walking probably just as far as walking from the Vashon ferry terminal. Like we parked about 1 mile past Dig. of course, there are also many parking restrictions near the WS ferry terminal to discourage parking there and walking on the ferry… so good luck!

Sorry, comment time is over.
