Given the level of crazy happening on Seattle roadways in recent weeks (see examples via Twitter, below), finding a Sound Transit Route 545 stuck at the tiny roundabout intersection of E Mercer and Malden (map) on a sunny Wednesday morning was only a little surprising.
Tuesday night, a crash-caused closure of Highway 99 sent streams of cars onto downtown streets and clogged up many neighborhoods in the rest of the city.
Wednesday’s wayward 545 was way way ward — we’re going to guess the driver got confused down around I-5. You can see the standard 545 route here.
“There was a new operator who got off route, which caused a delay,” a Sound Transit rep tells CHS.
