[Update @ 12am: train service all the way to the airport is restored.]
It’s snowing at a decently fast clip in Seattle, and all King County Metro and Pierce Transit buses are running on snow routes as of 9:30 pm. We haven’t heard terrible things about bus service around the area, so let’s hope everything passes smoothly.
[UPDATE: as of 11:11 pm, Sound Transit’s Twitter reports: “#STLink back to full service between downtown and airport.”]
Link light rail is experiencing more serious problems. According to Sound Transit’s Twitter, the car pictured above is somehow on the tracks near 144th & Macadam in Tukwila. As one can see from Google Maps’ satellite view of this area, these tracks are grade separated. Q13 reports that a car actually fell onto the tracks, just like a snowflake. KOMO reports that the driver escaped with minor injuries.
A rider alert isn’t available, but here’s what we know from twitter:
Link service is interrupted between Tukwila & Rainier Beach Stations. Link service is operating between Airport and Tukwila and Westlake and Rainier Beach. (tweet)
Bus bridge in place. (tweet)
The forecast is that rain will return to wash it all away by morning. I’d check your alerts before heading out.
