Whelan Bridge girders to arrive


September 13, 2018

The Whelan road bridge rebuilding project north of Pullman is nearing the home stretch this week with girders expected to be set Wednesday by a Public Works crew. A crane was scheduled to arrive Tuesday at the site on Whelan Road four miles out of Pullman.

The six-week project, which began in late July, will replace an old wooden bridge with a tri-deck reinforced concrete span – expected to last 60-75 years.

The Whelan Bridge was reinforced in the 1990s, which added to its lifespan.

The budget for the new bridge is $143,500, with the county's Public Works department doing the installation.

“That bridge, the old one, was a maintenance headache,”Brandon Kruger, operations manager, commented.
