No More Detour in Hoquiam, Simpson Bridge Open to Traffic

HOQUIAM, Wash. – Don’t take the detour route this morning in Hoquiam. Repairs to the Simpson Avenue Bridge wrapped up over the weekend and traffic has been returned to normal on both the Riverside and the Simpson Avenue bridges after pier work closed the Simpson down for 3 weeks.

Bridge WorkThe State Department of Transportation contractors also took advantage of the closure to raise the vertical clearance through the bridge’s trusses, which you may remember was recently damaged when an overheight semi trailer struck the girder in September.
