Bridge will be closed overnight on the weekend of Mar 14 and 15

SEATTLE -Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) crews will close the Fremont Bridge to all traffic overnight on the weekend of March 14 and 15. Bridge crews will repair a damaged center lock, the device that keeps the two leaves of the bridge firmly fastened down when it is not opening for marine traffic. The bridge will be closed to vehicles, pedestrians, and bicyclists from 11 p.m. Saturday, March 14, until 5 a.m. Sunday, March 15, in time for the St. Patrick’s Day Dash. During the repair work SDOT will provide shuttle services for pedestrians and bicyclists.

The Seattle Department of Transportation builds, maintains and operates Seattle's $12 billion transportation infrastructure. To further Mayor Nickels’ goal to get Seattle moving, the department manages short- and long-term investments in streets, bridges, pavement and trees, that better connect the city with the region.
