In March 2014, contractor crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation began work to improve safety on State Route 6 in Lewis County by replacing the existing SR 6 Rock Creek East Bridge, near Pe Ell.
Crews installed a new, wider structure that has 12-foot lanes and 6-foot shoulders.
Replacing the aging bridge with a wider and safer bridge now meets current federal seismic, flood and structural standards.
A wider roadway improves driver safety and allows traffic to flow smoothly across the bridge without delay.
