5:25 PM: The low bridge is completely out of service at the moment, so even the transit and other traffic that would normally use it must detour. Avoid the area.
5:35 PM: The problem is described only as a “technical issue.” We don’t know if it’s related to the maintenance needs that will be addressed in prescheduled closures 8 pm-5 am tonight, 6 pm-3 am tomorrow and (if needed) Sunday night.
6:12 PM: Just got to the low bridge – it’s open again.
7:28 PM: It closed again for several minutes for what SDOT described via Twitter as a “test closure.” Now we’re getting close to the SCHEDULED 8 pm closure, so please keep that in mind.
