Hood Canal Bridge work still delayed

PORT ANGELES -- The soonest work might resume on the $204 million Hood Canal Bridge replacement project is year's end, a state Department of Transportation spokesperson says.

Work was halted this summer at a Port Angeles facility, where bridge pontoons are to be built, when Native Americans remains were found.

"We are working on excavating the site and continuing negotiations with the (Lower Elwha Klallam) tribe on the best way to do that," said WSDOT spokeswoman Linda Mullen. She thinks the soonest excavation could finish is year's end.

"We do hope to have some negotiations with them on whether we can start some elements of construction perhaps sooner than the end of the year."

Kiewit-General is the prime contractor.
