Why is WSDOT repairing the damaged bridge girder on State Route 16 and Olympic Drive NW?
The Olympic Drive NW overpass on State Route 16 was struck by an oversized load. WSDOT is repairing the damaged bridge girder by installing a new girder on the westbound half of the bridge. In addition, the westbound lanes will be restriped to gain higher vertical clearance. A Variable Message Sign (VMS) will also be installed.

The End Result
This project will repair the Olympic Drive NW overpass.

Project Benefits

  • This project will restore the integrity of the overpass back to its pre-damaged condition.
  • The westbound lanes of State Route 16 will be restriped to gain vertical clearance.
  • A VMS sign provides more accurate and timely information to motorists.

What is the project timeline?
The project will begin August 4, 2014 and is expected to be completed in December 2014.
