information from Seattle Department of Transportation
Due to fallen utility poles and power lines, we closed East Marginal Way S to all members of the public in Georgetown between 14th Ave S and S 86th Pl in both directions. This closure blocks all access to the South Park Bridge, which is also closed to the public. The road and bridge are expected to remain closed today, Monday, October 25, and will be reopened once Seattle City Light (SCL) crews verify that the area is safe to travel through.
We are working with Seattle City Light around the clock in extreme storm conditions to respond to the hazard, clear debris from the streets, and safely repair wires so that the road can be reopened and power returned to customers. SCL is also working to respond to over 100 events caused by extreme weather and restore power throughout Seattle.
Travelers should plan ahead for delays on Monday. While the 1st Ave S bridge (State Route 509) will be open, long delays and far reaching congestion are expected. We encourage everyone who has the option to stay home or flex their commute times to avoid driving during peak times to do this. If you need to drive, please obey all traffic signs and follow detour routes, police directions, or find alternate routes. Notifications and travel advisories will be shared as streets reopen or conditions change.
