    Hey WSB…do you know if the blinking light at 15th/Holden has been reported? It’s been blinking red for 3 days now. Wondering if this is a new “normal”?

      Please call 206-684-ROAD to ensure they know. As I have found when asking about traffic cameras, they don’t necessarily.

    I’m curious as to why there was a RV and a couple of older cars parked along Harbor Avenue when there was clear signage stating no parking, violators will be towed?  No other vehicles were noted to be parked in the no parking stretch.

Sorry, comment time is over.
