Structural Deficiencies Cause Closure of Thurston County Bridge
Bridge on Littlerock Road closed to all traffic

OLYMPIA - Additional inspections have shown the need to completely close a south Thurston County Bridge. Bridge No. L4 on Littlerock Road SW, located between 110th Ave. SW and 93rd Ave. SW will be closed starting at noon today, Monday, January 27 for an undetermined period of time. Upon inspection of the bridge, some structural deficiencies were found making closure of the bridge necessary until temporary repairs can be made.

Speed restrictions were put in place for the bridge last Friday after changes to the bridge deck were noticed. Additional inspections over the weekend and today demonstrated the need for a complete closure of the bridge until it can be repaired. A detour route has been set up and motorists are urged to drive with caution and follow the signs.
