Update: Fremont Bridge nighttime closures March 3 - 7, but will remain open to pedestrians and bicyclists

SEATTLE-SDOT will close the Fremont Bridge to vehicles, but remain open to pedestrians and bicyclists during the nights of Monday through Thursday until the following mornings, March 3 to 7 to continue work on upgrading the mechanical and electrical systems of the bridge:

Monday, March 3 at 9 p.m. to Tuesday, March 4 at 6 a.m.
Tuesday, March 4 at 9 p.m. to Wednesday, March 5 at 6 a.m.
Wednesday, March 5 at 9 p.m. to Thursday, March 6 at 6 a.m.
Thursday, March 6 at 9 p.m. to Friday, March 7 at 6 a.m.

On these nights, SDOT’s contractor will not provide a shuttle service for pedestrians and bicyclists, since they will continue to use the bridge. However, buses will be rerouted during these closures. As the date approaches, see Metro Online at http://transit.metrokc.gov or call Rider Information, (206) 553-3000.

Marine traffic will not be impacted by the nighttime closures.
