For those who commute: Have the new traffic signals and right turn lane onto Suquamish Way improved traffic flow over the Agate Pass bridge?

Better than it was during construction.
Still backs up weekdays after 3pm with the ferry commuters. Volume.

Right now Day Road is a choke point with the new electrical supply poles are being installed.

Yes, it still gets a little backed up after 3 or 4 pm. But it's a lot better, even better than it was five years ago. Backup seldom goes past Seabold (occasionally to Hidden Cove), whereas even before construction it was frequently backing up all the way to Lovgreen - 1/4 mile vs. 2 miles. Before, one boat load would back up behind the previous one that still hadn't cleared the bridge. And it now clears up between boats (google traffic maps rock). I am now able to leave around 5 p.m. and I was staying at the office until 7 p.m. a while back. My commute time is seldom over 20-25 minutes (12.5 miles) where it was often 45 before.

The cycle at the casino signal seems much quicker. I'm not roasting in the sun at that light like I do at Hostmark/305 and Lindvig/Viking Way and often hit it green now.

All that said, I still wait to ride to work in the morning until 9:30 or later, or I take the back roads to avoid the signal at Day Rd.

16:36 - WTF, I stand corrected. Backed up to Day Rd. at the moment. Thursdays are the worst.
