Trout Creek Bridge 494 is located near milepost 6.0 on Index Galena Road where it crosses Trout Creek south of the North Fork Skykomish River in the Mount Baker – Snoqualmie National Forest. The existing bridge is a three span, 120-foot-long structure originally built in 1946.
Snohomish County Public Works has addressed scouring issues around the piers and removed excess asphalt from the bridge deck to ease weight and increase longevity. The bridge is in fair condition and county bridge inspectors regularly inspect this and all county bridges.
There are no plans to replace Bridge 494 at this time.
Construction schedules are subject to change based on many factors that include: public safety; availability of funding, staffing, equipment and materials; right of way issues; permitting requirements; coordination with utilities and other agencies; soil conditions under roadway and seasonal changes.
