The University Bridge will be unable to make openings for vessels overnight during two weekends this month.

Saturday and Sunday July 12 and 13, and July 19 and 20, the bridge will be secured in the closed position from 10 p.m. to 8 a.m. the following morning. King County Metro Transit crews will be rebuilding the overhead electrical wires on the bridge that power the trolley bus routes that cross the span.

The crews plan to continue their work until 10 a.m. on each of the Sundays specified, but vessels signaling for an opening after 8 a.m. will be accommodated, although there may be some delay in the opening while crews and equipment are cleared from the bridge deck.
