WATER TAXI ALERT: No midday service for up to 4 days next week

11:14 AM: Just announced by Metro:

Scheduled repairs to the Seacrest Dock in West Seattle will close the dock during the midday sailing hours between 9:00 am and 3:00 pm from Monday, May 16 through Thursday, May 19. Should work complete early, notification regarding service resumption will follow.

We’re following up to see what the repairs entail.

ADDED 2:14 PM: Water Taxi spokesperson Al Sanders tells us it’s actually maintenance: “The time is needed to complete the final phase of dock maintenance at Seacrest Park which had been scheduled for mid-April but was delayed due to supply chain issues. The contractor is planning on three days of work with one day as a buffer, so it is possible to resume service earlier based on their success in executing the work.”

    The closure may relate to the fact that the new Orca card system goes into effect that day. They may have to update their fare system.

      Or it could be, as the story states, due to repairs at the Seacrest Dock.

        I’m updating the story. “Repairs” was something of a misnomer – Metro tells me it’s scheduled maintenance.

Sorry, comment time is over.
