Cars were turning around to try another route, instead of waiting for the trucks backed up from the Terminal 46 entry gate at Atlantic Street on East Marginal Way S. Bike commuters were going through without any problem.
A perfect example of how truck traffic in the port and industrial areas is in conflict with car traffic, NOT with bikes.
Using less roadway width than a general purpose travel lane, people on bikes move beside other traffic on S Spokane and East Marginal Way S. Bikes are not slowing down trucks and cars, and are not slowed down by trucks or cars. Every person on a bike could otherwise be a person in a motor vehicle adding to this traffic jam. Bike lanes on the major truck streets increase bandwidth and flow. A good barrier between lanes here would increase it a lot more.
