5:04 PM: Thanks for the tips. We’re still waiting to hear back from SDOT about why the West Seattle low bridge has been open – and therefore closed to surface vehicle traffic – for more than an hour. In the meantime, use an alternate route, or delay your trip.
5:06 PM: SDOT says the low bridge is having “electrical problems.”
5:13 PM: SDOT says electricians are there but no ETA for repairs yet. Remember, in case it helps, the Water Taxi is running later tonight because of the Coldplay concert at Lumen Field.
7:39 PM: No official update from SDOT but the live camera shows the bridge is back open to surface traffic again. We will follow up tomorrow.
