If you see a problem on the bridges/streets/paths/water, please text or call us (when you can do that safely, and after you’ve reported to authorities if they’re not already on scene). Thank you!

    Do NOT attempt to take E. Marginal northbound. I’ve had to turn off my engine and start working from my trapped car.

      That sucks.  Any idea what the issue was?

        Planned construction closing lanes, but sdot wasn’t directing traffic, so it didn’t move. At all. I won’t be taking that route again until construction is over. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
