Work crews expected to delay traffic over Deception Pass

Motorists traveling over the Deception Pass Bridge Monday could encounter delays while works crews inspect utility lines stretching underneath the bridge.

Workers from the city of Oak Harbor and the Washington State Department of Transportation will inspect the lines from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday Feb. 25. The inspection will force one lane of the Highway over Deception Pass to close.

Motorists will encounter a similar situation in the spring. Department of transportation work crews will close one lane of Highway 20 to inspect the Deception Pass and Canoe Pass bridges.

A time hasn’t been scheduled for the inspection.
