We’re all getting squeezed for space; builders, developers, buyers, etc. Some relief can be found in the North and South Sound markets, as well as to the East. But let’s talk about the West.
With 405, 167, I-5 and 520 jammed, challenging commutes have become as much a part of our daily lives as coffee.
As the Seattle Times reports, thankfully our ship has arrived. If you haven’t heard, a new fast ferry is taking people from Bremerton to Seattle in 28 minutes. It’s a trip that used to take an hour or more.
