US 101 - Middle Nemah River Bridge Replacement - Completed May 2014

This project replaced the existing US 101, Middle Nemah River Bridge (milepost 33.84) with a new 36-foot-wide structure consisting of two 12-foot-wide lanes with six-foot-wide shoulders. The new bridge helps improve safety and increase mobility on US 101 in Pacific County.
