Work on this project is suspended in accordance with the budget established by the Washington State Legislature.
Why is WSDOT
replacing the Moclips River Bridge?
The location of the existing bridge and bridge piers allows debris and sediment to accumulate around the piers which requires frequent maintenance. Continued erosion and scour could shorten the useful life of the bridge.
The End Result
WSDOT will develop plans to replace the existing bridge with a new bridge that will withstand the changing effects of the Moclips River, and incorporate measures to prevent the river from causing further bank erosion.
- Safety - The new bridge would be structurally safe from the changing effects of the Moclips River.
- Environment - A bridge that spans the entire river eliminates the need for piers in the water, requires less maintenance, and prevents debris from accumulating and blocking the channel. Bank protection measures will improve the natural habitat.
