ORIGINAL POST: The University Bridge will be closed to vehicles this weekend for a repaving project.
The bridge will be closed both days from 4 a.m. to midnight. Pedestrians and bicycles will still be able to cross and the bridge will still open for boat traffic, according to the Seattle Department of Transportation.
SDOT crews will be repaving 400 feet of the roadway north of the drawspan. Crews will also be doing spot repairs on the sidewalks, inspecting the concrete portion of the bridge deck and doing minor maintenance on the section south of the drawspan.
Signs and police officers will indicate detour routes during the closures. Metro will be rerouting buses that use Eastlake Avenue. See their website for more information.
