PORT ANGELES — Drivers are expected to encounter delays at the Elwha River bridge on U.S. Highway 101 on Thursday.
The state Department of Transportation announced Tuesday that drivers might have to slow for one-way alternating traffic from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday at the bridge west of Port Angeles at milepost 239.
The alternating traffic will allow Transportation crews to continue ongoing bridge monitoring efforts, the state said in a news release.
Similar inspections that will also require alternating traffic control will occur on a monthly basis.
Inspections could occur more frequently if needed.
Transportation is focusing on the 1920s-era span following erosion around bridge piers that occurred after dams were removed from the Elwha River.
