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.
