US 97 Boundary Bridge #9323
County: Kittitas Highway: US 97 Region: North Central
Location: MP 159-160 (Swauk Campground)
Description: In this $4.5M project, WHH Nisqually Construction Services will construct a concrete bridge to replace an old culvert that created a fish passage barrier. Work will include a detour widening to shift traffic while the bridge is constructed half at a time. Two-way traffic will be maintained outside working hours throughout the life of the project, except some instances of work that may require overnight flagging. No full closures of US 97 are planned for this project. Work started on March 9 and is scheduled to be complete in late October.
Work schedule: Traffic has been shifted to a bypass lane with a reduced speed limit and 12 ft. width restriction. The reduced speed and width restriction are in place 24/7. Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. there is the potential for some traffic control with brief delays as the contractor stages equipment.
