CITY OF OCEAN SHORES MT. OLYMPUS BRIDGE CLOSURE

Ocean Shores, WA – September 28, 2021 – The City of Ocean Shores has closed the Mt. Olympus Bridge to vehicular traffic today due to immediate safety concerns.  Mt. Olympus Bridge crosses the Wm C Marr Fishhook Canal on Mt. Olympus Ave SE just north of Discovery Avenue SE and the Coastal Interpretive Center.

During a routine bridge inspection, inspectors noted a significant portion of the abutment under the northern approach had eroded and is impacting the structural stability of the roadway.  In an effort to minimize risk to public safety, City Officials have determined immediate closure to vehicular traffic is necessary.  The bridge will remain closed until the City can make necessary repairs to fortify the structure.

The City is working to quickly and safely reopen the bridge.  Additional information will be distributed to local news agencies and published on the City website at www.osgov.com as it becomes available.
