NE 3rd Avenue Bridge Seismic Retrofit
PROJECT DETAILS: Seismic improvements to the NE 3rd Avenue Bridge over the Washougal River are currently being designed by a consultant team lead by Harper Houf Peterson Righellis, Inc. (HHPR) of Vancouver. The project will reinforce the existing structure such that it will be better able to withstand a large subduction zone earthquake in the future. The project is funded by a $2.8 million grant from the WSDOT Local Agency Bridge Program. Construction is scheduled to begin in early 2020.
The NE 3rd Avenue Bridge in Camas is a two span structure carrying 4 lanes of traffic over the Washougal River. The bridge is comprised of two side by side structures, the first being a 1947 steel girder bridge which was then widened in 1970 with a concrete girder bridge. The bridge provides a critical arterial link between the cities of Camas and Washougal, and has ADT’s in the range of 10k. Camas has received Federal Funding through the WSDOT Local Bridge Program to design and construct seismic and other related improvements.
