    WSB. Is SDOT still on track to give a bridge opening date this Thursday?  Will it be a full-blown press conference or just a mention at the WSTC meeting? Any mention of what time it will be announced? 

    • WSB June 6, 2022 (6:43 am)

      They have not said it will necessarily be an *opening date* – it is promised as a *timeline update*. I’m checking on the meeting time today (as well as the viewing link), since the task force page hasn’t been updated.

      UPDATE: Found the link/time via YouTube – 4 pm Thursday (June 9th) – you’ll be able to watch here:

    WSB. Do you know if those ticketed for crossing the low bridge are included in the parking ticket payback? they shouldn’t be, but you never know with the city.

    • WSB June 6, 2022 (7:32 am)

      No, they are not, nor any other tickets from cameras.

    The low bridge opened at 8:11 AM, and is still open a half hour later.This has happened so often, my job is literally in jeopardy. 

    • WSB June 6, 2022 (9:01 am)

      @sdotbridges shows it was open for marine traffic 8:12-8:42.

      I cross the low bridge all the time on my bike. When I absolutely have to make an appointment I leave a half hour earlier. Learned that the hard way when I missed a ferry. This is a problem that can be managed.
