There is a multiple vehicle accident blocking the northbound lanes of the Ballard Bridge. Emergency vehicles are on the scene. There is no estimate yet as to when the northbound lanes will re-open for traffic. As a result of the situation, the bridge is not opening for marine vessels until the accident has been cleared. The Seattle Department of Transportation advises northbound motorists to plan ahead and take an alternate route. Southbound motorists may want to avoid the bridge as well as that traffic is moving past the accident very slowly and a back is quickly growing.
