Forest Service Road bridges close for required inspections and repairs

Bridges will close around Grays Harbor for repair and inspection.

The US Forest Service announced that the Tea Creek Bridge near the Campbell Tree Grove Campsite will be closing for repairs. The bridge, on Forest Service Road 2204, Mile Post 14, will be closed all day on August 9th for the work.

The bridge is located a half mile past the Campbell Tree Grove Campsite.

The campground will remain open during the bridge repair.

Additional bridges in the region will be closing temporarily between August 7th and August 16th for inspection.

By law, bridge inspections are required every two years to ensure that the bridges within Olympic National Forest are compliant with National Bridge Inspection Standards.

Most bridges will be opened intermittently during the inspection to allow for traffic flow.
