Finish date moved back for bridge


December 6, 2018

Completion date for the Highway 26 bridge deck project west off Highway 395 has again been extended, the Department of Transportation reported this week. Cold temperatures have extended the time needed for new rails on the bridge to cure.

“The temperature situation makes the exact date difficult to determine,” said Jeff Adamson, DOT's spokesman for the North Central District Wenatchee.

Adamson Tuesday told the Gazette the new bridge deck has finished curing and meets all specifications.

The Highway 26 deck job has led to a 14-mile detour via Connell installed for cross-state traffic.
