SR 16 - Olympic Drive NW Bridge - Special Repair - Complete June 2015

The Olympic Drive NW overpass on State Route 16 was struck by an oversized load. WSDOT repaired the damaged bridge girder on the westbound half of the bridge, and restriped the westbound lanes to gain higher vertical clearance. A Variable Message Sign (VMS) also was installed.
