Traffic patterns shift on Eighth Street bridges in Port Angeles

PORT ANGELES — Construction crews changed traffic patterns on the Eighth Street bridges Friday at about 1 p.m.

According to a news release, westbound traffic has shifted to the south side bridge lanes. The bridges will remain open to only westbound traffic with detours for eastbound traffic.

This may give drivers the feeling they are driving on the “wrong” side of the road while crossing the bridges.

Along with the traffic shift, the sidewalks on the southern side of the bridges has opened to pedestrians while the northern sidewalks has closed.

City officials remind drivers to obey the 20 mph speed limit in the work zone.

The sidewalk barrier work is still scheduled for completion around Friday, Sept. 14.
