Alert 10/28-29: Another Fremont Bridge overnight closure early Saturday

Work to repair the deck of the Fremont Bridge requires one more overnight closure, according to SDOT.

The bridge will close very early Saturday morning from midnight until 6 a.m. Just like the previous closure, the bridge will allow walking and biking across the span for 15 minutes at 1, 2, 3 and 4 a.m.

So if you are going to out late Friday or if you work early Saturday, be ready to detour. I will say that while the Aurora Bridge sidewalks do suck, they’re not nearly as bad as the Ballard Bridge sidewalks. That is a very low bar, though.

More details from SDOT:

  • The Fremont Bridge will be closed overnight from 11:59 p.m. Friday, October 28 to 6:00 a.m. Saturday, October 29.
  • During this time, our crews will be completing nighttime maintenance work to weld and repair sections of the bridge’s metal deck grating.
  • The bridge will be closed to vehicles all night. However, we plan to allow people walking, biking, and rolling to cross the bridge for 15 minutes at 1:00, 2:00, 3:00, and 4:00 a.m.
  • The nearest other bridges across the Ship Canal are the Aurora Bridge (SR 99), Interstate 5, Ballard Bridge, or University Bridge.
  • King County Metro bus service is expected to be rerouted around the closure, and riders are encouraged to plan extra travel time. Riders also are encouraged to sign up to receive transit alerts via text or email to learn about temporary route changes. Information also will be posted online closer to the closure date on Metro’s Service Advisories page.
  • The work is weather-dependent.
