Hurry up and wait | Photo of the day 2.23

Traffic on Highway 305 starts to back up near Hidden Cove Road as work restarted Friday on maintenance and cleaning work on the Agate Pass Bridge.

The annual cleanup effort was put on hold Thursday after Bainbridge Island roads were blanketed with a few inches of snow.

As long as wintry weather remains in the forecast, Washington State Department of Transportation crews will evaluate daily whether work can proceed.

Crews are scheduled to reduce the bridge to one-way alternating traffic each day through Friday, March 2, the Department of Transportation said Thursday. Based on progress between now and then, work crews will determine whether the timeframe for closures will be extended to compensate for lost work days.
