CRP 837

Replacement of the Sullivan Lake Inlet Bridge

CRP 837 will replace a one lane wooden bridge with a 2 lane concrete structure.  The current bridge was constructed in the 1930’s and has far outlived its functionality.  Pend Oreille County is partnering with WSDOT, County Road Administration Board, FHWA and Seattle City Light to provide a new bridge that will allow for two way traffic and be able to carry loads from modern day truck configurations.  The project will start in early Spring of 2018, when Versatile Industries, Inc. of Ione, WA will begin the in-water work before the lake level is raised.  All shoreline and in-water work is being done under permitting from the US Fish & Wildlife and Washington State Dept. of Fish & Wildlife.  The project is slated to be completed by mid May 2018.
