Spokane Street Low Bridge Closures to Traffic for Five Sundays Starting December 19
Seattle Department of Transportation plans to briefly close the Spokane Street Low Bridge for three times a day on upcoming Sundays in December and January.
The bridge is scheduled to close three times a day for up to 30 mins each. Closures begin around 9 AM, around 1 PM, and around 5 PM.
SDOT is attempting to align these short closures to happen during off-peak periods and when there are lulls in traffic to minimize impacts to the community.
The planned dates for these closures will be:
- Sunday, December 19
- Sunday, January 9
- Sunday, January 16
- Sunday, January 23
- Sunday, January 30
Authorized vehicles and pedestrians using the low bridge will need to take the signed detour routes during these closures, travel at a different time, or wait up to 30 minutes when the bridge will reopen.
With public safety as a top priority, low bridge access is restricted to keep the low bridge clear for emergency vehicles, transit, and heavy freight.
- Low bridge is closed to most vehicles weekdays from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. and weekends 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Unauthorized vehicles will receive a $75 ticket for every trip across the bridge.
- Low bridge is open to everyone weeknights from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. and weekends from 9 p.m. to 8 a.m.
- Low bridge pedestrian path is open all days and all hours for people walking, rolling, using an electric foot scooter, or biking
