Reminder: University Bridge Nighttime Closures this Weekend

SEATTLE- SDOT's contractor who is painting the University Bridge will need full bridge closures this weekend in order to paint parts of the bridge that are not accessible when traffic is present.

The contractor will close the bridge to all traffic (motor vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians) from 3 to 6 a.m. Saturday, April 25, and from midnight Saturday to 6 a.m. Sunday April 25 and 26.

Alternate bridges over the ship canal that can be used during the closures include the Montlake Bridge, Aurora Bridge, and Fremont Bridge.

For more information about the project, please see SDOT's Website at http://www.seattle.gov/transportation/universitybridge_painting.htm.

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.
