Simpson Avenue Bridge closes today for inspection
The Simpson Avenue Bridge will close today through Wednesday for routine inspection.
From 9 am to 3 pm, the Washington State Department of Transportation will close both lanes of the Simpson Avenue Bridge while crews perform a routine scheduled bridge inspection.
During the closures, WSDOT crews will detour traffic onto Riverside Ave.
Crews perform various inspections on the 86 year old bridge each year. This inspection, performed every two years, reviews the infrastructure of the bridge.
You are encouraged to allow extra time for their commutes during the daytime bridge closures. WSDOT recommends leaving early, carpooling or taking transit.
