Tolt Hill Bridge to close Monday for half-day inspection

The Tolt Hill Bridge will be closed Monday, but only for a half day, as engineers inspect the bridge for planned repairs.

Starting at 9 a.m. Monday, Nov. 20, workers will use an under bridge inspection truck to examine the joint connections of the steel trusses on the bridge. The work will require lane closures and flaggers will direct traffic through the work zone. The work is expected to be done, and the bridge re-opened, by 1:30 p.m.

The information from this inspection will be used in the final design work on repairs planned for the bridge since earlier this year, when a problem with its construction was identified by King County Engineers.
