Broadway Bridge Replacement Project

Project Description:

The Broadway Bridge is more than 100 years old and in need of replacement. We will demolish and replace a 100-feet span by 100-feet wide bridge over the Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) railroad main line. The bridge span is located on Broadway between Hewitt Avenue and California Street.


Current weight restrictions:

Effective June 19, 2014, the City Engineer has extended a weight-limit restriction to all lanes of Broadway between Hewitt Avenue and California Street. Vehicles weighing more than 11 tons must use alternate routes:

Signed truck detour route

Alternate truck routes



Contract Awarded to Interwest Construction, Inc.  October 1st, 2014

Begin Detour Route construction: November 2014

Begin Bridge Demolition:  January 2015

Complete Construction: Fall 2015


 Why will it take so long? 


·         No over-track work allowed while trains are running – 44 freight trains on average per day

·         No over-track work allowed from October to December – BNSF major freight season restriction

·         Total demolition and new construction of the bridge with new foundation and abutments (as opposed to swapping out a bridge span like the temporary Skagit River bridge)

·         Different vertical alignment – for improved sight distance and railroad clearance
