White Salmon Bridge Repainting Will Cause Delays

The Washington Department of Transportation says repainting and other work starting next week on the White Salmon Bridge along Highway 141 in Husum will cause delays for about two months.  Temporary stoplights at each end of the bridge and at Oak Ridge Road will guide alternating one-way traffic during the work, leading to delays of up to ten minutes.  Crews will replace expansion joints on the bridge deck, then begin painting.  The 74-year-old bridge was last painted in 1988, and the transportation department says its protective coating is deteriorating.  Crews won’t work below the deck of the bridge before September 22, allowing rafters to float under the bridge until the first day of autumn.
