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.


How you benefit

Improves safety
This project restored the integrity of the overpass. The westbound lanes of State Route 16 were restriped to gain vertical clearance.

Relieves congestion
A new VMS sign was installed during this project. A VMS sign provides motorist with important information about traffic congestion, incidents, roadwork, travel times, special events or speed limits on a specific highway segment.

Economic incentive
The intention of the Washington State Department of Transportation is to recoup costs to the agency resulting from the girder damage and repairs from the responsible party.
