SHINE – The state Department of Transportation has rescheduled overnight vehicular closures of the Hood Canal Bridge for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of this week.

The scheduled closures are set from 11 p.m. the night before until 4 a.m. the next morning.

They are dependent upon the weather, the state says, and could be canceled as they were Christmas week.

If the bridge is indeed closed, it will be to allow crews to continue work on a project that replaces and bolsters bridge equipment.

During the closures, the bridge will not open for any traffic, including emergency response vehicles.

The five-hour overnight closures are:

• 11 p.m. Tuesday to 4 a.m. Wednesday.

• 11 p.m. Wednesday to 4 a.m. Thursday.

• 11 p.m. Thursday to 4 a.m. Friday.

The closures were originally scheduled for Dec. 21 and Dec. 22 but were canceled due to adverse weather conditions, the state department said.

The cancellation announcement was issued on Dec. 23.

To discover if the closures have been cancelled in real time, it is necessary to download the WSDOT mobile app. Information for doing so is at https://wsdot.wa.gov/travel/travel-information-phone.

The agency once sent text messages upon request about Hood Canal Bridge closures and openings but a notice on the website says those have been disabled due to cost.
