1:15 p.m. And… all lanes have reopened nearly four hours after the crash.
11:45 a.m. Southbound lanes are still closed. SDOT crews are using a crane to make repairs to the guardrail of the bridge. No ETA on when lanes will reopen. If you’re leaving Ballard to the south, you’ll need to take the Fremont Bridge or head over to Aurora or I-5.
10:50 a.m. The SUV has been towed away, but southbound lanes remain closed. From the traffic cameras, it looks like maintenance crews are looking at the bridge railing.
Seattle Fire says the man driving the SUV was able to extricate himself without injury.
This is the second major crash on the bridge in the last two weeks, and it’s a good reminder to take it easy across the bridge — especially when it’s raining.
10:00 a.m. Looks like a single vehicle rollover crash involving a SUV. Police have opened both northbound lanes now, but southbound remains closed. Keep an eye on our Ballard traffic cameras for the latest status.
9:50 a.m. An accident in the southbound side of the Ballard Bridge has closed all but one northbound lane. Unclear if there are any injuries.
