Traffic across the Agate Pass Bridge will be shut down to one-way alternating traffic only during daytime hours for 11 consecutive days beginning Tuesday, Feb. 19.

Drivers can expect at least 30-minute delays during the work, according to officials with the Washington State Department of Transportation .

Officials said that one-way alternating traffic will allow crews to conduct an in-depth bridge inspection and maintenance.

The lane closures are planned for 8:45 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays, from Tuesday, Feb. 19 through Friday, March 1; and from 7:45 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 23 and Sunday, Feb. 24.

Transportation officials are asking drivers who use the Highway 305 span across Agate Passage to add extra travel time for crossing the bridge during the work hours, and to consider postponing discretionary trips or change their travel plans to early in the morning or later at night.

Ferry customers are also being encouraged to consider using the Bremerton or Kingston ferries.
