Due to steel deterioration found on the Aurora Bridge, one southbound lane has been closed until further notice.
The Washington State Department of Transportation says bridge inspectors found “advanced deterioration” of the steel underneath the bridge. While it’s still safe to travel on the bridge, they’ve closed the right-hand southbound lane to address the issue.
WSDOT says travelers should expect delays during commute times, especially those heading downtown from Wallingford or Fremont.
“While the bridge is still safe to cross, the southbound right lane will remain closed around-the-clock until repairs are developed and implemented,” WSDOT wrote in a statement about the closure, adding that additional closures may be needed.
