Olympic National Forest – Bridge inspections at several locations on the Olympic National Forest later this month will bring temporary closures.
The US Forest Service announced that an Under Bridge Inspection Truck (UBIT) will be used to examine selected bridges and while the work is being done, all traffic will be stopped for extended periods.
The closures include several bridges in Grays Harbor, including some near Lake Quinault and Wynoochee Lake.
Bridges will be closed while the inspections are underway. The work is scheduled to last between 1.5 and 11 hours, with openings approximately every 60 minutes during the inspection to allow for traffic flow.
Work is scheduled between July 18 and July 25.
Please expect delays when accessing the listed routes during this period. Consider alternate routes and plans on the days noted.
The Forest Service advises anyone who may be using the roads to expect delays and find alternate routes on the forest during inspections.
Maps are available at forest offices.
