Agate Pass Bridge painting ramps up after winter break

Agate Pass Bridge painting ramps up after winter break

As winter comes to a close, the Washington Department of Transportation crews resumed work finishing the paint job on the Agate Passage Bridge on Monday, March 9.

WSDOT intends to keep both lanes of traffic on the bridge open during most of the work, though the speed limit is reduced to 35 mph. Also during the evening hours, travelers can expect alternating lane closures.

There will also be temporary commercial vehicle restrictions for oversize or overweight vehicles.

For pedestrians, one outside sidewalk will remain open.

Repainting of the bridge will require an extensive containment unit in which crews will work to strip away old paint and add a layer of new paint. So far about 25 percent of the key span between Bainbridge Island and Suquamish has been completed.
