Until further notice, Washington State Department of Transportation bridge maintenance crews have closed the right lane of eastbound US 12 across the Heron Street Bridge. The lane is closed until crews can make repairs adjacent to the bridge.
During the morning of Thursday, January 14, crews discovered a 7-foot by 8-foot section of scour under the bridge approach. A bridge approach is a concrete slab that connects the roadway with the bridge.
WSDOT bridge engineers will determine repair options so crews can fully reopen the roadway.
Travelers are encouraged to add extra time to reach their destinations.
Real-time traffic information is available on the WSDOT mobile app.
