Spirit Vision Films will begin filming and documenting the progress of the Ward Bridge Restoration project by local contractor Bruch and Bruch Construction of Port Angeles, Washington, starting on June 17th, 2019. They will be working for the Clallam County Road Department to restore this county bridge.
The contractor has asked that the road closure be pushed up to June 17th because of the time element involved in setting up the project’s in-water work and fish window permit that starts on July 15th through August 15th. This is a very short 30-day period to complete the repair of the supports that span the Dungeness River.
They will begin creating access roads on either side of bridge prior to doing the in-water work in July, giving them a head start when the fish window appears.
Spirit Vision Films will be on hand documenting the closure of the bridge through the opening of the repaired bridge, that will include fresh asphalt paving in late September.
We will give video updates throughout the repair as we did with the reconstruction of the McDonald Creek Bridge last year. You can see that project here https://vimeo.com/270272547.
