The Coast Guard has issued a temporary deviation from the operating schedule that governs three Seattle Department of Transportation bridges: the Ballard Bridge (LLNR 18180), mile 1.1, the Fremont Bridge (LLNR 18182), mile 2.6, and the University Bridge (LLNR 18235), mile 4.3,all crossing the Lake Washington Ship Canal in Seattle, WA. The deviation is necessary to accommodate highway traffic during the closure of the Alaskan Way Viaduct and prior to opening the SR-99 Tunnel. This deviation authorizes the three subject bridges to not open to marine vessels, less than 1000 tons, unless the vessel has in tow a vessel of 1000 or more gross tons, from 0001 on 11 Jan 2019 to 2359 on 09 Feb 2019. The hours to not open the three subject bridges to marine vessels are from 0700 to 1000 and from 1530 to 1900 seven days per week.
