SHINE — The state Department of Transportation has scheduled overnight closures of the Hood Canal Bridge on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
The bridge is set to be closed to vehicle traffic overnight Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, from 11 p.m. that night to 4 a.m. the following morning.
This is DOT’s third attempt to close for five hours at a time to allow crews to continue work on a project that replaces and bolsters bridge equipment. Similar overnight closures were canceled Dec. 21-22 and Jan. 4, 5 and 6 because of adverse weather conditions, the agency said.
Here is the revised total closure schedule:
• 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.
All work on the bridge is weather-dependent and could be rescheduled.
Due to the nature of the work, the bridge will not open for any traffic, including emergency response.
To discover if the closures have been canceled in real time, it is necessary to dial 5-1-1, see www.wsdot.com/traffic, or download the WSDOT mobile app. Information for doing so is at www.wsdot.wa.gov/travel/travel-information-phone.
Email alerts also are available.
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.
