WSDOT replaced both of the West Fork Hoquiam River bridges due to structural deficiencies. The new bridges are concrete and meet current seismic and engineering standards.
This project addressed bridge safety concerns. The two timber bridges over the West Fork Hoquiam River suffered rot damage and were severely weathered. Replacing these bridges with new bridges improves motorist safety.

This project improved the natural flow of the river by removing the piles from the river. The new single span concrete bridges did not require construction in the river.
