    Just headed out of WS from Admiral. Roads are covered in spots but generally safe once you get on main through roads. Bridge travel lanes are clear but saw the 21 was stuck on Delridge onramp heading eastbound with a line of traffic (including the 50) stuck behind. I-5 is bare and wet. Merry Christmas to all…and safe travels!!

    The Ferries are not on a weekday schedule; they are on a weekend/holiday schedule today.

      Hi – thanks. What was missing was “Fauntleroy-Vashon-Southworth route” – the only one in our area – which is indeed on a weekday schedule per the WSF website, so I’ve added that to clarify that’s what we were referring to. – TR

    Do not forget to shovel your sidewalk.

    They’re running junction circulators instead of rapid ride outside junction.

Sorry, comment time is over.
