    I might have misunderstood today’s traffic alert, but when I came back from downtown around 11:30 am, there was no problem/closure of the I-5 southbound exit to the WS Bridge. 17 minutes door to door, whee! Thanks to all the engineers, construction workers, and others who helped get our bridge fixed!

      They might have ended the work early, as often happens, haven’t checked yet today, but the closure was still listed as in effect as of very early this morning.

        And checking Twitter – yes, they announced the work was done as of about 10:30 am.

Sorry, comment time is over.
