Lucia Falls Bridge #116 will be closed beginning Monday, Aug. 7. This will close Hantwick Road to through traffic. Northeast 279th Street will also be closed to through traffic east from Northeast 182nd Avenue. The closure will allow work to strengthen the bridge and ultimately remove the existing weight restriction. The closure is scheduled to last no more than 20 calendar days (through Aug. 26) but may be extended as needed. Exact closure start and end dates are weather dependent and subject to change.
Traffic will be redirected around the bridge via Northeast 172nd Avenue and Northeast Lucia Falls Road. Drivers should follow the directions of signage and flaggers. A map of the detour route can be found on the project website.
This is part of a larger project to strengthen nine bridges throughout Clark County and remove existing weight restrictions. Project details, including detour maps, can be found at clark.wa.gov/public-works/bridge-strengthening-projects.
