Front Porch: Goodwill job center expands

Goodwill expansion: Goodwill Industries’ Job Training and Education Center is holding an open house and ribbon cutting to celebrate expansion. A $30,000-a-year donation funded the opening of a new and larger South Everett job training center, and a third classroom will allow enrollment in GED and other classes to increase to 180 students per session from 120.

The open house will be from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday at the Everett Job Training and Education Center, 210 SW Everett Mall Parkway, Suite D, in Everett. Free classes, support and job placement services will be available. For more information or to RSVP to the open house, call 206-726-5857.

Broadway bridge closed to heavy vehicles: Weight restrictions on Everett’s Broadway bridge has been extended to all lanes of travel effective Thursday, the city says.

Previously, the weight limits were limited to the right lanes of the bridge. Now all lanes of travel on Broadway between Hewitt Avenue and California Street will be restricted, depending on the type of vehicle.

The allowable weight limit will remain at 7 tons for single-unit trucks and buses, 9 tons for semi-trucks and 11 tons for tandem-trailer trucks. Typically, cars, minivans and pickup trucks are under the 7-ton weight limit. Parking on the structure will remain closed to all traffic.
