What do you do when you break a 900-day routine? You party and think about all the new things you can do.

Seattleites were certainly pumped when the West Seattle Bridge officially reopened at 9:23 p.m. Saturday night after a two-and-a-half year closure. A plethora of videos were sent in to the West Seattle Blog when the final barricades were removed and included footage of first treks across the bridge. Freedoooommm. 🦅

We also heard that some commutes from the Westside to downtown went from a 45-minute ordeal to about a 10-12-minute drive. Have a similar experience? Let us know.
