Agate Bridge work done early

State Department of Transportation crews have wrapped up work on the Highway 305 Agate Pass Bridge two days ahead of schedule. The work began Feb. 14.

Since the work is completed on the bridge connected Poulsbo and Bainbridge Island, daytime lane closures across the bridge are no longer necessary.

WSDOT reported that motorists avoiding the bridge during work hours as requested was a big reason why crews were able to get work done early.

Cleaning extends the life of the bridge by reducing corrosion and allowing for more thorough bridge inspections. Crews will return for similar bridge cleaning work in February 2023.
