I just spoke with Chantelle at Public Works (Monday 3:30 PM). She said that we’ll start doing new two-lane car queuing & loading process tomorrow, as soon as the Whatcom Chief returns to service in the afternoon.
Here’s a link to the PDF showing & explaining the process. It’s a sort of ‘weave/merge/braid’ approach, with cars — their drivers, rather 🙂 — in each of the two lanes taking turns driving onto the dock.
It’s probably worth printing out, to make sure that at least we islanders clear on the process.
