Note from the Montlake Flyer Editor: The Montlake bridge is closed on May 6 to vehicular traffic at 10am so that people can watch the crew races. The bridge is closed to automobile traffic, but open to bicycles and pedestrians. Just before noon, the bridge is raised for the boat parade, and remains raised until 2:30-3pm (depending on the size of the parade). After this, the bridge is lowered to allow vehicle traffic with only limited openings for vessels, and should return to normal operations by 5pm.
