The Wahkiakum County Eagle - Established as The Skamokawa Eagle in 1891

Open house Wednesday for Puget Island bridge project


March 15, 2018

The Washington Department of Transportation will hold an open house Wednesday, March 21, at the Norse Hall, 5-7 p.m., to explain preservation work set to begin soon on the State Route 409 Puget Island Bridge.

Last week, a contractor removed the osprey nest from the steel structure and placed it on a new nearby pedestal. Next, painters will go to work on the steel structure, and later this year, crews will replace the wooden timbers underlying the road surface. During this portion of the project, work will occur at night, and the bridge will be closed to traffic, with the only access to the Island being the ferry Oscar B.

Open house details from WSDOT:

Where: Norse Hall, 144 State Hwy 409, Puget Island

Details: This is a drop-in open house, so residents can attend anytime during the event. WSDOT staff will be available to discuss the construction schedule and traffic details that will affect all users of the highway.
