Montlake Boulevard Northeast  is  closed alongside Husky Stadium for construction of a pedestrian-bicycle bridge to Sound Transit’s future University of Washington Station.

The closure, which includes sidewalks, started Friday night and is to continue until 3 a.m. Monday.

Traffic is detouring around the Rainier Vista triangle — northbound using a direct route, but southbound drivers must go as far west as Brooklyn Avenue Northeast before backtracking with multiple turns, to go past UW Medical Center.
