Good things are everywhere. The sun is shining, the long holiday weekend is starting and the Hood Canal Bridge may open a week earlier than anticipated. After four years of being asked "Do you think you will get the work done early?" it feels really good to finally be able to say "yes".
We don't know exactly when the bridge will re-open yet because there are several critical, weather-dependant work elements we need to still accomplish, including the Q/R joining operations this weekend. On Monday will we take another look at the work accomplished and what is left to do and share another "re-opening date" update. For now, my advice is this: If you have an appointment across Hood Canal on or after June 8, check your route before you go.
So get out there and enjoy the sunny water shuttle ride across the canal, knowing that this too will not last forever (or even six weeks).
