Washington DOT Highway 97 Project Completion Pushed Back to Fall 2013

wsdot.gov

Earlier this year, The Washington State Department of Transportation began replacing the Satus Creek Bridge and realigning US 97. The construction brought immediate delays to  anyone traveling in this area. The $12 million project was planned for completion this fall, but in the aftermath of cold and icy weather, the Washington State Department of Transportation has delayed the project through the rest of the winter. Construction is now scheduled to resume in the spring, with overall completion slated for fall of 2013.

The 35 MPH speed limit will remain for safety reasons, even though construction is not in progress.

Right now in that area part of a detour bridge is being used along with part of the new bridge. In the past three years, 499 projects have been completed and are in service, and soon this one will be added to the list.
