151-foot girders coming to Port Angeles for Eighth Street bridges

PORT ANGELES — The details still are being worked out but sometime during five days in late March or early April, 25 precast concrete bridge girders measuring 151 feet long and weighing 160,000 pounds will be delivered to the Tumwater Creek bridge construction site.

Another 25 of the beams — the length of three semi-trailers — will be delivered to the Valley Creek bridge site in late June.

Transporting the massive bridge pieces from Tacoma will require at least one week of continuous construction activity.
