SHINE — The state Department of Transportation will close state Highway 104 to traffic across the Hood Canal Bridge for five hours Thursday night.
The closure, initially canceled earlier Thursday, has been reinstated, according to the agency.
The bridge will be closed to traffic from 11 p.m. Thursday to 4 a.m. Friday. Not even emergency vehicles will be able to cross, DOT has said.
During two nights of work earlier this week, crews replaced thick industrial-sized rubber bumpers. The bumpers connect to the end of each half of the bridge and help to prevent wear and tear on the concrete floating pontoons.
