    Hood Canal Closure, WA state

    I thought I would post a heads up about the closure of the Hood Canal Bridge May1, for a six week period. Anyone cruising this way might what to take a look at alternative routes.

    I'm sort of bummed about the closure but there will still be a fair amount of snow on the OP through the closure period so at least I wasn't planning any rides out there.

    Lots of folks selling houses on the "other" side of the bridge this winter...

    Yeah, I drive up to Anacortes quite a bit and take PT ferry over and back. Looks like it's going to be the super slab for a while. Early Sunday morning rides up I-5 ain't to bad.....

    Unhappy Hood Canal Closure

    Thanks for the heads up, I have friends I want to visit over there, Now I'll have to pay tolls for Tacoma Narrows on the way back.

    Steve,

    This whole thing sort of slipped out of my mind until recently...if the weather holds up during the last week of April I might take a day off from my busy (haha) schedule and do the Canal Loop from Seabeck. If you've got the time and inclination you're welcome to ride along...I usually depart the house around 11 or so and ride up to Fat Smitty's at Discovery Bay for lunch.

    Cheers! BJ

    That sounds like a good plan. It's been couple of years since I've been on the part of the road. Beautiful ride... Let's keep in touch on that.

    Scott, I noticed on the link I posted up above that there is going to be ferry run out of Edmonds to Pt. Townsend too.
