Lewis and Clark Bridge to close for critical work
Construction begins week of June 12
May 4, 2023
The State Route 433 Lewis and Clark Bridge connecting Longview, Washington and Rainier, Oregon will close to vehicle traffic for up to eight days beginning 8 p.m. Sunday, July 16 as Washington State Department of Transportation contractor crews from Combined Construction, Inc. replace two bridge expansion joints and a fractured floor beam. Pedestrians, bicyclists and emergency responders will be able to cross the bridge during the closure except during a small window when the floor beam is being replaced.
On April 12, bridge inspectors discovered a fractured floor beam resulting in an emergency 12-hour closure. Prior to that discovery, the bridge was scheduled to close for up to six days for expansion joint replacement work. The closure has been extended to accommodate the additional work of installing a new floor beam.
