Aberdeen, WA – The preferred alternative to replace the Heron Street Bridge will be released this month.
The Washington State Department of Transportation says that a June 12 open house will unveil the survey results and benefits of the preferred method.
In March, a public meeting was held to get input from the public on the 4 options presented to replace the bridge over the Wishkah River.
According to WSDOT, the response was overwhelmingly in favor of keeping the crossing in its existing alignment.
KXRO spoke with Dennis Engel, Multimodal Planning Manager for WSDOT, asking him what the current timeframe may entail.
The current bridge was first opened to traffic in 1949.
No funding sources for design or construction of a new bridge have been announced.
A drop-in style open house will highlight the preferred alternative. No formal presentation will be given, however region planners will be on hand to explain the bridge alternatives, answer any questions and take feedback.
