The bridge will be closed to all vehicular traffic. However, bicyclists and pedestrians will still be able to cross Montlake Bridge. 

The south half of the bridge will be open to marine traffic with one-hour advance notice on Saturday and Sunday from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. There will be no bridge openings from 6 p.m. Saturday to 6 a.m. Sunday or from 6 p.m. Sunday to 5 a.m. Monday.
