The incident caused a 5.5 mile backup across the bridge into Mercer Island and Bellevue. The Washington State Department of Transportation said that travel times on I-90 into Seattle were about an hour by 9 a.m.
An alternate route across the 520 floating bridge took about 28 minutes into Seattle at that time.
