Snohomish County Public Works has begun construction to replace bridge in Lochsloy community
EVERETT, Wash., June 3, 2016 – Pilchuck River Bridge 581, also known as Glover’s Bridge, is closed for construction. Work on the bridge began in April and is scheduled to be completed in the fall. Throughout the construction period, area residents are being reminded that the work zone is closed and there is no public access to the bridge.
What: During construction there is no public access to Pilchuck River Bridge 581. This includes no access to the river via the bridge, no pedestrian access, no parking, and no U-turns in the construction zone
When: Now through the completion of the bridge in the fall of 2016
Where: Pilchuck River Bridge 581; 64th Street NE in the Lochsloy community, between Lake Stevens and Granite Falls
The original bridge was built in 1960 and is a one-lane, steel, and timber structure. The replacement bridge is being built using a steel truss design; this will eliminate the need for intermediate support piers and help to reduce debris accumulation under the bridge.
