Accidents on Montlake Blvd have partially closed the Montlake Bridge and caused traffic to back up. Way up. Metro busses are rerouting along Boyer to the University Bridge and cars are cutting through neighborhood streets.

12:30: Northbound traffic being turned around at Hamlin. Bad news for buses and dump trucks that can’t make the U-turn:
