Puget Island bridge work will resume this month
March 14, 2019
Crews will be returning soon to complete the Washington State Department of Transportation’s deck replacement and painting project on the Puget Island bridge.
With spring on its way, workers will be back to paint the bridge below the roadway; complete deck work, including sidewalk planks, curbing, drainage, and paving; and replace rivets and do steel repair work. Finally, there will be some finishing touches and removal of all the construction equipment.
Single lane closures are tentatively scheduled to begin on March 22. The single lane closures are expected to remain in place 24 hours a day, seven days a week until the project is completed.
Total bridge closures have not yet been scheduled but will be necessary at some point in order to complete deck paving. The deck paving requires warmer weather, and curbing, drainage and other deck work must be completed first.
Anyone who has signed up to receive email and text alerts will be sent a notification when single lane closures are set to begin. WSDOT will also include any traffic impacts to their project webpage, the travel advisory webpage and the traffic alerts webpage.
