  •  Memorial Day Weekend! hope this is calmed down (7+ / 0-)

    by next week -- we have a trip north planned for Tues after the holiday!!!

    there IS a brand new bridge a couple of blocks to the east, and fairly easy off-on at interchanges within a half-mile north & south of the river... hope things are sorted out enough that that detour is running well by the time we get there!

    FYI, it's:
    a.  South of the river, take the exit for "East College Way, WA 538", and proceed East;

    b. then in about 2 blocks to the east is Riverside Drive, which runs N-S and crosses the river on the new bridge;

    c. then to get back on I-5 on the N side of the river, look for the new "George Hopper Road" interchange to get back to I-5.

    We also drive this a lot, and had been trying to suss out the G. Hopper thing last trip, because there's a new Costco Gas over there somewhere.

    "real" work : a job where you wash your hands BEFORE you use the bathroom...
