US 97 Okanogan River Bridge at Omak - Deck Repair #009279
Counties: Okanogan, Highway: US 97 Region: North Central
Location: MP 285.6 to MP 292.6 Jct. w/SR 20 north to Jct. w/SR 215
Description: This $670K Hamilton Construction Co project replaces the top surface of the deteriorating concrete deck of the bridge at US 97 MP 292 just south of Riverside Dr./Engh Rd.
Work began August 1 and should be complete by Labor Day.
Construction and the detour began 6 a.m. 8/13, and will continue 16 days to 9 p.m. 8/28, while US 97 will be closed from the jct. w/SR 155 at MP 291.2, and the jct. w/SR 215 (Riverside Dr./Engh Rd.) at MP 292.3. During the work, all Hwy. 97 traffic will be detoured through town:
The 6 mile truck detour runs between the jct. w/SR 20 in Okanogan at MP 286.2 to the jct. w/SR 215 in Omak at MP 292.3.
The much shorter auto detour route runs between the jct. w/SR 155 (Dayton St.) at MP 291.2 to the jct. w/SR 215 (Riverside Dr./Engh Rd.) at US 97 MP 292.3.
