SR 26 - US 195 - North Fork Palouse River Bridge Repairs

This project entails work on the SR 26 bridge and US 195 bridge over the north Fork of the Palouse River in north Colfax. 

On SR 26, the sidewalk and pedestrian rail will be replaced, using the supports installed in 2015.  A guardrail will be added to protect pedestrians from errant vehicles.

On US 195, girder support repairs are planned.  That work may not take place in 2016.

Why is WSDOT repairing these bridges?
Both structures were constructed in the mid 1930's and need repairs?

Overview
Ground off top layer of asphalt and resurfaced the highway.

 

How you benefit

Economic incentive
