"JeffConnections" (jeffconnections.com) is a new local Web site with the monniker:
Port Townsend and Jefferson County's source for transportation and event news.
The focus of the site currently is the upcoming six-week Hood Canal Bridge closure beginning May 1, 2009.
The site features bridge closure news updates, links to a wide variety of local transporation and community information sources, transit and ride share information, a discussion forum, transportation-related blogs, and photos and video.
Users may sign up for an RSS feed, e-newsletters, or to be a "JeffConnections blogger." The site will offer various options for those who desire real-time news updates of road and transit conditions during the Bridge closure.
The site is managed principally by the Port Townsend & Jefferson County Leader. Information on the site is coordinated through a local Hood Canal Bridge closure steering committee.
The site may continue after the Bridge closure as a clearinghouse for transport information.
