University Bridge to close on and off today due to the heat
The University Bridge will close for about 10 minutes each hour during the day so it can be flushed to keep it from getting too hot, says the Seattle Department of Transportation.
There could be some maintenance headaches if the bridge gets too hot and expands.
The closures will continue until the early evening when it gets cooler.
