Granite Falls Bridge #102 Replacement - Funding Strategy

Granite Falls Bridge #102 is the gateway to an important economic and recreational corridor. It spans the Stillaguamish River approximately 1.5 miles northeast of downtown Granite Falls, WA and is part of the 52-mile Mountain Loop Scenic Byway between Granite Falls and Darrington. 

The existing bridge is a 340-feet long, two-lane structure built in 1934. The inside width is 28 feet to accommodate the two 10-foot wide travel lanes and two 4-foot wide sidewalks. The proposed plan is to construct a new, wider, longer, three-span, precast concrete girder bridge just west of the existing bridge. 

A preliminary design study has been completed and an Environmental Checklist has been issued for this proposed project.

The project design and right-of-way phases are fully funded by the County Road Fund. Snohomish County is actively seeking construction funds. See application submittals below for the following grants:
