Ballard Bridge closed for several hours overnight

At 10:15 last night, police closed the Ballard Bridge in both directions, and Seattle Fire was told to respond for “water rescue standby.”

While there’s no official word of the cause, it appears the response was for a person in crisis. The bridge reopened at 3 a.m. There’s no word on the status of the individual.

If you or someone you know is contemplating suicide, please call the King County crisis line, which is open 24 hours a day: 1-866-4-CRISIS (1-866-427-4747) or 206-461-3222.

  1. I was on a boat at the marina next door. It was a very tense and distressing situation. I hope she’s okay and gets help. My heart was aching for her.
