Weather taking toll on commuters and workers
Get ready for another windy night on Hood Canal.
If the wind kicks up and the seas become unsafe for the water shuttles, the service wil be delayed or canceled.
Watch the weather reports and plan ahead, and explore other options for getting around. We'll let you know right away if the weather forces disruptions to the water-shuttle service.
Poor weather is also affecting work activities on the bridge project. The wind and choppy seas make the work more dangerous, and the workers more cautious.
The rain is also playing a role, as WSDOT maintenance crews pumped 60,000 gallons of standing water out of the Port Gamble park and ride and into trucks that took it off site.
