[Update 4:38pm: P-I reports some more lanes are open, but traffic still looks ugly. Apparently, this was all caused by a moron tossing a cigarette into a bone-dry median.]
Brian Bundridge, out at Tukwila station, has several items to report:
“due to the brush fire in Des Moines, buses are being rerouted to Hwy 99/Pacific Hwy”
“I-5 and Hwy 99 are complete gridlock”
“Parking at Tukwila station is COMPLETELY FULL. And there are 4 TVM’s”
“I’ve already been hearing that street parking several blocks away is stuffed, too.”
“and businesses have been towing people”
“I just got on board Link (got lucky to see someone pulling out) and it is almost standing…”
Nothing on any agency websites about the reroute.
If this persists, I’d take Sounder to go South.
