Possible late paper delivery

A five-hour closure — interrupted several times to ease congestion— is planned for the Hood Canal Bridge tonight and early Wednesday morning.

The closure will be from 11 p.m. tonight and 4 a.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 2.

Crews will open the bridge to traffic several times during the time period. The traffic openings will be unscheduled and performed as workloads allow.

Depending on work progress, additional night closures may be scheduled.

The closure could mean that delivery of the Peninsula Daily News and the Sequim Gazette could be delayed. The newspapers are printed in Everett and brought back over the bridge in the early morning hours.

The closures allow crews to continue a project to replace mechanical components of the bridge.
