WSDOT is on a tear with Highway 6. Pretty much every structure on it that has not been replaced will be soon.

It was all dependent upon getting money to do it. Apparently a lot of it has come in for replacing/construction. At one point they wanted to make Highway 6 two lanes in either direction.

Expect the other concrete tee beams not doomed to become such soon.

The truss bridge will be torn down in mid May, right after the new bridge opens:
