5:05 pm: The bridge has finally reopened in both directions after closing more than four hours ago. No word on what caused the malfunction.
3:30 pm: The bridge has now been closed for 3 hours with no ETA on reopening. Just be glad this isn’t a weekday. See the bridge traffic cameras here.
2:15 pm: The bridge is still broken, and all lanes remain closed.
1:20 pm: A week after the Ballard Bridge got stuck, it’s stuck again this Sunday afternoon, closing all lanes. Traffic is backed up in all the usual directions as drivers take alternate routes.
SDOT first reported the bridge is experiencing “technical issues” at 12:30 pm. Maintenance crews are on scene, and there’s no ETA to when it will reopen.
