Hospital Campus Visitor and Family Guide

Montlake Bridge Closure

During several weekends this fall, the Montlake Bridge – the bridge along SR-513 that connects Montlake to the University District – will be closed to traffic. This includes all vehicles and may include pedestrians and bicyclists. Light rail transit will not be impacted. During the closure, allow extra travel time to get to appointments at Seattle Children’s hospital campus. Expect the detours to add time to your drive.

Closure dates (subject to change):

  • Oct. 8-11
  • Oct. 22-25
  • Oct. 29-Nov. 1
  • Nov. 19-22

Closures occur from 10 p.m. on Friday until 5 a.m. on Monday.

There may also be additional nightly closures throughout the fall where one lane of traffic on the Montlake Bridge (either northbound or southbound) will be closed.
