Operational training closes SR 104 Hood Canal Bridge tonight, April 27

Operational training exercises on the SR 104 Hood Canal Bridge require nighttime draw span openings this week.
Drivers can expect nightly bridge openings of up to 20 minutes from 7:30-11:30 p.m. starting today, Tuesday, April 27 and ending Thursday, April 29. The short-duration openings allow bridge crews to review emergency protocols and reinforce their familiarity with the bridge’s draw-span systems.
Next month, WSDOT’s Bridge Preservation Office will conduct federally-required annual inspections on the SR 104 Hood Canal Bridge starting May 10. The inspections, which include a total review of all systems, are standard for all moveable bridges in Washington and require approximately three weeks of short-duration daytime and nighttime openings.
