PCL Civil Constructors will begin repair work Monday, April 6, on the overhead structure damaged recently by a over-height loaded vehicle.

The damage was found Saturday morning during a bridge inspection and WSDOT closed SR 410 in both directions over the the bridge.

WSDOT officials estimates SR 410 at the bridge will be closed for several days.

The damage was caused by a vehicle traveling westbound.

WSDOT publishes minimum and maximum bridge heights for each direction of travel on the WSDOT Commercial Vehicle Services website and the state route bridge vertical clearance trip planner. The minimum and maximum measurements may fall inside or outside the traveling lanes, including shoulders. If an operator has an oversized load between the minimum and maximum measurements they are responsible for checking the vertical clearance prior to travel.
