    Not sure what is going on but it has taken us over 20 minutes on the 116 Express to get from 3rd & Cherry to the stadiums.  Looks like it will be another loooong commute out of downtown tonight.

      Slow evening commute. Half hour to go from 3rd and Columbia to 4th and Holgate on the bus.

        Metro sent an alert that says overall slowness is the fault of trouble on I-5 and I-90.

      I suspect the traffic backup from the  accident on I-90E bled over into the traffic on 4th Ave S.  I was checking the WSDOT and SDOT twitter for an accident in SODO, but nothing was posted.  From my bus, I could see the slow/non moving traffic easing onto the I-90.

Sorry, comment time is over.
