Crews take steps to correct elevation of road by Ten Mile Bridge

ASOTIN, WA - The Ten Mile Bridge construction project completion date has been pushed back again.

The bridge, which was scheduled to be finished this week prior to the delay, will be finished later than planned due to an issue with the elevation of the road by the bridge. We're told that the road is too high. Wednesday, they have begun taking measures to correct the issue.

"It's unfortunate, but it does happen," said Asotin County Engineer Jim Bridges. "We caught it in time, and that's the important thing."

Bridges said that there's a full time inspector on sight. They plan to begin paving the week of April 29th.
