    Question. Was at the Chelan intersection and watched a car share car(not uber/lyft) go across the low bridge. Am guessing the company can come back after the fact to collect the $75 from the driver?

    Can someone please explain why West Seattle residents cannot use the low bridge in the evenings and on the weekends, when there is no truck traffic and little bus traffic?

    Would also be nice if they would fix all the pot holes that are just going to get worse when we have freezing weather and snow. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
