Traffic Alert: Tilley Road Bridge Closed Wednesday at 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
T-2 crossing near 140th Ave. SW slated for 12-hour closure for maintenance work

Drivers in Thurston County are reminded that the T-2 Beaver Creek Bridge will be closed for 12 hours beginning at 7 a.m. on Wednesday, August 20. The T-2 Beaver Creek Bridge is on South Tilley Road just north of 140th Ave. Southwest.

Public Works staff members expect the work to be completed Wednesday, but crews may also need to close the bridge for a period on Friday, August 22 if weather or other factors delay the work. The department will announce on Wednesday, August 20 if the work is complete or if a closure on Friday, August 22 is needed.

The T-2 Bridge work on Monday and Wednesday and the detour route on Reeder Road Southwest will not affect the L-4 Bridge detour route—the T-2 detour route is east of I-5, and the L-4 Bridge detour route on Case Road Southwest is west of I-5.

Additional details about the T-2 Beaver Creek Bridge maintenance work and a map of the detour route are available at www.co.thurston.wa.us/publicworks/Sections/MAINTENANCE/roadops.aspx.
