Lake Washington Ship Canal Bridges May Have Longer Opening this Afternoon

Seattle-- A very large derrick and barge is scheduled to pass through the ship canal later this afternoon. This may happen during the normal "closed period" for the bascule bridges (Fremont, Ballard, University, Montlake bridges) and the opening time will likely be much longer than normal. This may result in significant traffic backups.
