Suspicious bag shuts down ferry route in Edmonds
EDMONDS, Wash. — The Edmonds/Kingston ferry route was shut down for about 3 hours Sunday after passengers noticed a bag with wires hanging out of it.
Ian Sterling from WSDOT says passengers were disembarking the Puyallup on the Kingston to Edmonds run when the bag was discovered about 1:30 p.m.
A 500-yard safety zone has been established around the Edmonds/Kingston terminal while law enforcement searched the boat and investigated the bag.
The Spokane was also diverted to Seattle to ease delays.
As of 4 p.m., the Edmonds/Kingston Route resumed its normal schedule after authorities determined there was no threat.
However, expect long delays throughout the ferry system.
