Anyone traveling to and from Puget Island next week should expect some delays during the day as WSDOT plans to return to install the remainder of the bridge joint membranes on the Puget Island bridge.
Crews will close a single lane of the highway and flag traffic across the bridge, Monday, August 24 through Friday, August 28, daily from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., according to Tamara Greenwell, of the Washington State Department of Transportation.
Bridge joints help extend the useful life of the new bridge deck by preventing moisture and debris from getting under the deck surface, according to the press release.
WSDOT asks drivers to slow down through the work zone, pay attention, and give crews room to work.
