Grays Harbor County travelers are encouraged to give themselves extra time if their plans include the US 101 Simpson Avenue Bridge in Hoquiam next week. Weather permitting, contractor crews working for Washington State Department of Transportation will make expansion joint repairs to the bridge during overnight hours when traffic volumes are less.

US 101 Simpson Avenue Bridge closure details:

  • 8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 24 through 10 a.m. Friday, Sept. 25.

Travelers will follow a signed detour using the US 101 Hoquiam River Riverside Bridge, which will temporarily accommodate two-way traffic during repairs.

The work is part of an existing project to repair several miles of US 101 and make pedestrian improvements.

Updated construction and maintenance information is available online. Before heading out the door, travelers can find the  real time on the WSDOT app and by following the WSDOT regional Twitter feed.
