6:47 AM: Spinout/flipped vehicle just reported blocking both lanes on the westbound bridge, westbound end before fork to Fauntleroy.
7:08 AM: No injuries reported. Westbound traffic has been diverted to the Admiral exit.
7:23 AM: Tow truck’s there but the scene isn’t cleared just yet.
7:43 AM: The westbound bridge JUST reopened – crash scene is clear.
7:52 AM: Another “non-injury rollover” reported, this time on West Marginal Way SW at Puget (map). A pole is down, per scanner. Both directions are reported to be blocked; City Light is en route.
8:32 AM: Our crew was told one person was taken to the hospital. South of the crash scene, northbound drivers are being turned around at the Alaska Marine Lines lot. SFD has cleared the scene; City Light is there now. (Also, thank you to Cathy and Nikki for updates – Cathy warns that the north-side turnaround for southbound drivers is precarious, so again, avoid the area TFN.)
9:09 AM: Photos added. Still closed, and with the pole/wires involvement, it might be a while. We’re continuing to monitor.
11:25 AM: Scanner discussion says one lane is now open each way on West Marginal.
