SDOT will extend the existing temporary closure of one of the two westbound lanes to the western-end of the bridge to accommodate Seattle City Light crews inspecting the bridge’s existing lighting fixtures beginning Monday, December 7. That work may continue through the end of the week. The inspection is in support of future lighting fixture upgrades on the bridge.
The lane closure will extend from where SDOT crews are making expansion joint repairs. These ongoing efforts are to prolong the life of the bridge and keep the structure safe for travel.
