GRAYS HARBOR - Aberdeen and Hoquiam drivers may see temporary delays along streets in the two cities on Tuesday, June 16 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. WSDOT crews will be taking core samples along city streets to test their structural integrity.
The work is part of WSDOT's planning for a new pontoon construction site to build pontoons for the SR 520 floating bridge. Construction of the site will begin in 2010. The pontoon construction work will bring heavy truck traffic to some streets in the area.
WSDOT is currently evaluating two candidate sites to build a new pontoon construction facility in Grays Harbor - one in Hoquiam and one in Aberdeen.
