    Are they closing the bridge for cars too?

    The activity type is listed as “Nighttime Activities” so why is the trail closed all day? And surely if this were a closure for cars, and actual detour would be mentioned? Or maybe they could mention whether Metro/ST are providing free rides across the bridge for cyclists like they have in the past?

    This seems like an uncommonly unhelpful announcement even for WSDOT.

      I hope it’s not a matter of cyclists and pedestrians considered not important enough to justify the effort of moving the fence.

    I think they just changed their minds… or realized they were causing problems for cyclists.

    Will the 520 Exit Lake Washington Blvd/Montlake be closed again this evening?
