Extra traffic expected for Memorial Day weekend ferry runs
Washington State Ferries expects at least two to three hours of waiting time for travelers heading west for Memorial Day weekend festivities.
WSF personnel suggest travelers stay away from peak times to exacerbate the already growing lines.
The longest waiting times are expected to occur on Thursday afternoon and Friday heading west, and Monday afternoon and evening for those heading east.
Several runs will be impacted by the holiday weekend, they are as follows:

• The route will run on a Saturday schedule May 31.
