Bridge #26211-A Fox Island Bridge Girder Repair (CRP 5949)


Due to permitting and submittal requirements, the repair project is now expected to begin after October 1, 2023. The Fox Island Bridge girder repair project will focus on degraded bearings on the mainland end of the bridge, Pier 17 and Pier 20. 

  • This work is expected to take 1.5 months to complete.

  • The bridge may be reduced to one lane with alternating traffic during active construction. 

  • Flaggers will direct traffic as needed during work hours. 

  • The bridge will be closed several times for short periods at night during the project. 

  • We will provide notice prior to these short closures including variable message boards. 

  June 2022 Community Meeting

Engineering / Construction 
A Contractor is under contract for the construction of this project.

A preconstruction meeting was held with the contractor on Jan. 5, 2023. 

Crews were on the bridge in January to take necessary field measurements for the project. 

Construction on the underside of the bridge is expected to begin in late Fall 2023 due to contract submittal delays. 

All environmental permits have been obtained for this project.
