New service alerts motorists of Hood Canal Bridge openings
July 9, 2009 · Updated 12:10 PM
An e-mail and text message service that alerts motorists of Hood Canal Bridge openings is now available. Those who subscribe receive a brief electronic message that lets them know when they’ll be delayed due to a marine opening or a traffic-impacting incident on the bridge.
The alerts provide an estimated road-closure duration. The service does not alert subscribers when the bridge reopens to vehicular traffic.
