W-SE Canal Bridge:

CHANGE: NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN in accordance with RCW 47.48.020 that previously proposed Spring 2023 construction work on the ROAD-W SE Canal Bridge has been postponed.  There will be no construction work while the canal is running water.  Thereafter, the bridge shall be closed for bridge extension work from 10.18.2023 to 01.21.2024, with a planned reopening on or before 1.22.2024.  The work will extend the existing bridge by 30’ per the original 1950 plans.  This requires the construction of a 3rd pier, new abutment on the extended side, and a 4th span of wood beams.  This construction schedule may change again, should Federal funds become available for a “full replacement” of the bridge.  This notice is given in accordance with Resolution 23-006 Adopting a Six Year Transportation Improvement plan for 2023-2028, which includes this bridge work.
