10:20 AM: We are off to verify, but wanted to offer a heads-up as soon as possible (can’t really tell from the nearest traffic cam) – a texter just sent word there’s trouble at the “low bridge” (describing it as “broken”) and that they were told it would be closed at least an hour.
10:52 AM: We are at the bridge. Definitely not open to traffic. An SDOT maintenance person who just arrived could tell us only that it’s stuck. No ETA on fix. Closed to peds and bikes, too.
11:41 AM: The traffic camera for the intersection west of the bridge shows vehicles coming from it – so we believe it’s open again, but are heading back to verify.
11:50 AM: Verified – it’s back in service. Thanks again to the person who originally texted us about the temporary shutdown; SDOT does not send traffic alerts on weekends, so we wouldn’t have known without a reader alert.
