Replacement of Davis Bridge #232 was completed on Dec. 28, 2022. Northeast Davis Road is now open to traffic.
In October, Clark County advertised for contractors to complete the replacement of the bridge and received eight construction bids
Davis Bridge #232 is located on Northeast Davis Road approximately 0.6 miles east of Ward Road, just south of Hockinson. Constructed in 1935 and partially rebuilt in 1953, Davis Bridge is a single span concrete girder bridge which spans Fifth Plain Creek and has an Average Daily Traffic, or ADT, volume of 2,766 vehicles. Over time, scouring of the material under the west abutment has resulted in the continual monitoring of the condition of the bridge by county staff. In 2015, high water flows resulted in additional undermining of the west abutment resulting in a further reduction in the “Sufficiency Rating” of the structure resulting in the need to replace the bridge.
This project involves hydraulic and civil design, structural engineering, environmental permitting, right-of-way, public involvement and construction to remove the existing bridge and replace it with a new structure.
Construction is anticipated to cost $1,521,000. County Road Funds in the amount of $816,000 and Real Estate Excise Tax funds of $705,000 have been identified to fund the project.
SCHEDULE AND TRAFFIC
Construction is expected to begin Wednesday, June 22, 2022. A detour route has been developed so traffic can be rerouted during construction. Through traffic will need to use alternate routes for the duration of the project. To view the detour map click here.
