Alert: Spokane Street Bridge closed ‘all weekend’

The Spokane Street Bridge to West Seattle didn’t make it through the ice storm, and it will likely remain closed for the rest of the weekend.

SDOT Director Greg Spotts said on Twitter that the mechanical problem on the swing bridge “may have been caused by a power outage” during the ice storm. But regardless of the cause, it will be out of service “all weekend,” he said.

To stay updated on bridge progress, check the SDOT Traffic Twitter account. But if you need to cross between mainland Seattle and West Seattle tomorrow, consider an extended trip to the 1st Avenue Bridge as a little Xmas gift form the ice storm.

You can also check the city’s traffic camera feed to see if it is open:
