Traffic Impacts of Razor Clam Bridge Project in Ocean Shores Rescheduled

The previously scheduled September 7 delivery and installation of the pre-cast concrete girders for the South Razor Clam Bridge has been re-scheduled for September 15, 2017.  Essential materials for the installation of the girders will not arrive on site until September 8, necessitating the rescheduling of the girder delivery and installation.

The contractor’s delivery plan remains the same: bring the girders into the City on Point Brown Avenue and travel south to South Razor Clam Drive.  Upon arrival at South Razor Clam Drive, flaggers will stop traffic to allow the delivery trucks to back down South Razor Clam Drive.

During the delivery of the girders, traffic along Pt. Brown Ave. will be reduced to a single lane from North Razor Clam Drive to Seagate Street.  Delays of up to twenty minutes can be expected during the delivery of each girder. This work is scheduled between 7:00AM and 4:00PM on September 15.

South Razor Clam Drive will be closed to thru traffic.  Property owners and residents may expect some delays and limited driveway access during this period, however every effort will be made to minimize the impacts to property owners and residents.

The City of Ocean Shores encourages motorists to use alternate routes during this work.  Additionally, motorists and pedestrians should maintain a safe and respectable distance between themselves and the construction traffic, especially during this phase of the project.   Should you have any questions or concerns regarding this upcoming activity please feel free to contact Nathan Wilkerson at 360-940-7633.
