Naval station drills

Naval Station Everett is running security exercises from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday.

The main gates will be closed for 10-minute intervals during the drill. Those nearby may notice a larger security presence than usual, and hear blank gunshots and emergency messages on loudspeakers.

That practice helps improve coordination between the Navy and local agencies. It also keeps the base prepared in the case of an actual emergency.

CT route changes to Seattle

With the impending arrival of light rail to Northgate, Community Transit is restructuring its service to connect with the frequent train schedule.

The Snohomish County transit agency proposed to connect 800-series buses to Link light rail at Northgate. All 400-series buses to downtown Seattle would continue operating. Sound Transit’s 510-series buses would connect Snohomish County to Northgate, but no farther into Seattle.

Sound Transit and Community Transit will present a revised proposal for public comment in April.
