SHINE – Authorities report that construction crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation will intermittently close the State Route 104 Hood Canal Bridge to vehicular traffic Wednesday night through Thursday morning for construction activities. The construction work and closure is dependent on the tides and may be adjusted. The closure is scheduled for 11 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 16 to 2 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 17.
During this three-hour timeframe, crews will open the bridge to traffic numerous times to ease congestion. The traffic openings will be unscheduled and performed as workloads allow. Drivers are advised to assume that the bridge will be largely unavailable for use.
Depending on work progress, additional night closures may be scheduled.
