The South Seattle Bridge in South Seattle remained closed on Tuesday morning as the crew worked to repair a fallen utility pole on the E-Marginal Way. SDOT said on Monday that the wind was too strong to work on a forklift. They are coming back today and hope to reopen the road late Tuesday afternoon.

Information from the Seattle Transport Authority
Due to the collapse of utility poles and power lines, all civilians closed the East Marginal Way S in both directions between the 14th Ave S and S86th Pl in Georgetown. This closure will block all access to the South Park Bridge. The South Park Bridge is also not open to the public. Roads and bridges remain closed today, Monday, October 25, and will be reopened once the Seattle City Light (SCL) crew confirms that the area can be safely passed.
We work with Seattle City Light 24 hours a day in extreme storm conditions to respond to dangers, remove debris from roads, safely repair wires, reopen roads and return power to customers. I am trying to do it. SCL is also working to restore power across Seattle in response to more than 100 events caused by extreme weather events.
Travelers should plan Monday delays in advance. The 1st Ave S Bridge (State Highway 509) will open, but long delays and widespread congestion are expected. We recommend that you do this for anyone who is at home or has the option to change their commute time so that they do not drive during peak hours. If you need to drive a car, follow all traffic signs and follow detour routes, police instructions or find another route. Notifications and travel recommendations will be shared as the streets reopen and circumstances change.
