Prevent Traffic Jams
Please read the sign. Fender bender? Drive damaged vehicles to nearest wide spot.
Please move your car off the road if traveling through Gorst, WA. The traffic jam 2/7/2013 caused by a fender bender resulted in a 1.5 hour traffic jam. This costs local employers thousands in over-time paid to employees. An alternative to spending 1.5 hours in the traffic jam is to go to a local diner and wait... there. Another thought is the devastating amount of emissions added to our atmosphere because of idling(in this area there is hardly any wind to clear out the emissions from car exhaust).
If you are involved in a mechanical failure or fender bender you must move to the nearest exit. Heading north bound Gorst, WA to Bermerton, WA move it all the way to Charleston Highway(Navy Yard Highway) or Loxie Eagans Blvd exit. If heading south bound you must move your car to the gas station in Gorst, WA and (not use the middle area to pull off too).
