Roberts Road/Anderson Creek Bridge No. 249 Replacement Project
Bridge No. 249 over Anderson Creek on Roberts Road will be replaced with a new pre-stressed concrete slab or girder bridge with a reinforced concrete substructure. Due to rot discovered in the existing bridge's timber caps, Whatcom County was awarded $1,098,151 in federal Bridge Replacement Advisory Committee (BRAC) funds to use toward the bridge replacement. The total project cost is estimated to be $1,400,000.
The engineering consultant, KPFF Engineers, is currently under contract and has begun preliminary design work.
Construction will begin in the summer of 2017 or 2018 and will last approximately 4-6 months.
The proposed detour during construction will be to temporarily re-open the currently closed section of Roberts Road between Martin Road and Central Road. This section of road would be closed again one construction is completed.
