Bid Awarded to Quigg Brothers to Repair Hoquiam’s Simpson Avenue Bridge
WSDOT closed the bridge to motorists in August after noticing unusual movement on the bridge and then discovering severe erosion and degradation of the timber piles that support the bridge’s concrete piers.
During the closure, motorists are detouring using the nearby Riverside Bridge. Built in 1927, the Simpson Avenue Bridge is a 1,978-foot-long bridge that spans the Hoquiam River and carries about 13,000 vehicles per day.
