The Washington State Department of Transportation has canceled a series of night SR 305 Agate Pass Bridge closures that were scheduled over three weeks in December. As a result, both lanes of the bridge will remain open throughout the month of December.
The work that was to occur involved replacing seven overhead steel horizontal bridge members that were damaged by an overheight load. The repairs were in preparation for a bridge painting project scheduled to begin in 2019. WSDOT has canceled the work to allow staff more time to prepare for the task. Times and dates of the work will be announced as it is rescheduled.
In addition to the above bridge work, in February 2019 WSDOT crews will return to the bridge for its annual bridge inspection. Crews at that time will reduce the bridge to one-way alternating traffic during daytime hours. Specific information will be forthcoming on that work as the time approaches.
