The Granite Falls Bridge 102 Replacement project is one of four Washington projects to receive funding from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Rebuilding America’s Infrastructure with Sustainability and Equity (RAISE) grant program. The $22.1 million RAISE grant for Bridge 102 is the largest award in Washington state. The Granite Falls Bridge Replacement project is now fully funded and staff are working on environmental and design with construction targeted to begin in 2025.
Granite Falls Bridge #102 is the gateway to an important economic and recreational corridor. It spans the Stillaguamish River approximately 1.5 miles northeast of downtown Granite Falls, WA and is part of the 52-mile Mountain Loop Scenic Byway between Granite Falls and Darrington.
The existing bridge is a 340-feet long, two-lane structure built in 1934. The inside width is 28 feet to accommodate the two 10-foot wide travel lanes and two 4-foot wide sidewalks. The proposed plan is to construct a new, wider, longer, three-span, precast concrete girder bridge just west of the existing bridge.
