SHINE – Night work scheduled Saturday and Sunday on the Hood Canal Bridge has been canceled due to predictions of inclement weather.
Work and closures scheduled tonight will take place as planned. From 10 tonight until 4 a.m. Saturday, drivers can expect intermittent closures of the bridge.
During those hours, crews will occasionally open the bridge to traffic to ease congestion. The openings will be unscheduled and performed as workloads allow.
Weather permitting, crews will resume intermittent night closures from 10 p.m. Monday and Tuesday until 4 a.m. each following day
The night work allows crews to continue progress on a project to replace mechanical systems that open and close the drawspan.
The forecast calls for windy conditions on Saturday with rain that extends into Sunday.
Drivers are strongly encouraged to sign up to receive messages for the latest information about this project.
Transportation awarded the $5.2 million contract to Northbank Civil and Marine Inc.
