SEATTLE –Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) officials advise Seattle motorists to avoid the University Bridge during today’s afternoon commute, as it is closed because of this morning’s water main break.

Access to the bridge to ascertain the structural integrity of its foundation is hampered by the presence of two cars sitting on a Puget Sound Energy gas line. SDOT officials are on the scene.

Metro bus commuters should call 206-553-3000 to find out about re-routed Metro buses.
