COLFAX — Three new bridges are being built this summer.
In Belmont a 30-foot wood bridge on Black Road will be replaced with a steel span at an estimated cost of $180,000, according to Whitman County Public Works Director Mark Storey.
On Hume Road, south of Oakesdale, the wooden dump bridge will be taken out and replaced with a metal culvert pipe. Cost is estimated at $40,000.
On Bernard Road, on the north side of Steptoe Butte, a 16-foot wooden bridge on the dirt road will be replaced by a large metal culvert. Cost is estimated at $40,000.
Each project will be done by the county bridge crew, starting June 15 and scheduled to be completed by mid-August.
