Heavy Montlake Traffic Tomorrow During Opening Boating Day

The annual Opening Day Boat Parade and Windermere Cup will be held all day tomorrow and that means the Montlake Bridge will be closed from 10am to about 4pm.

Races begin at 10:20am, followed by the Opening Day Boat parade, with the theme this year "Toys Ahoy" at noon.

 About 10,000 people are expected to attend the event according to SDOT (Seattle Department of Transportation). So there will be congestion in the vicinity and around the University of Washington.

In addition, the westbound off-ramp from Highway 520 to Montlake Boulevard will be closed along with the left-turn lane on the eastbound off-ramp of 520 to Montlake.
