On monday morning we were stopped by a flagger @ about MP 56.  After a 25 minute wait the pilot car came leading a row of vehicles eastbound.  We then followed it to another flagger about 2mi west.  In between there was nothing: no vehicles, no workers, no cones or barriers,  nothing but a dead squirrel.  The only people we saw were the two flaggers and the pilot car driver. The rumor is that WSDot has hired one of the Chris Chistie staff members who was fired after "bridgegate".

Yea the first construction zone started at Zekes and ended before Anderson Creek crossing which was done by contractors and the second section was that rough spot west of Grotto where the WSDOT crew was grinding and repaving. I only made it to my home port of Sky but believe another section hopefully the Tye River Bridge gets addressed first. I am glad that it is addressed regardless of the waiting.

Itís back, sorry to say. Specifically, eastbound traffic from Monroe to Sultan will be gridlocked Saturday morning due to a parade and other festivities.

Thanks for posting this, NancyAnn!!! You saved my bacon.  I was planning to join a Washington Kayak Club trip down the Sky on Saturday, but there's no way I'm going to subject myself to that traffic.  I already alerted the trip leader and hopefully, she can divert the trip to somewhere a little more sane like the Sauk.

Here's the link to this year's festivities:  2018 Sultan Shindig
