Barr Creek Bridge 158 is located near milepost 3.03 on Ben Howard Road. This short span bridge is located south and east of the City of Monroe over Barr Creek. The existing bridge is a two span, 21 foot long structure originally built in 1956. This bridge is built on timber piles and needs to be updated to support Seismic Design Codes. Barr Creek Bridge is considered a seismic lifeline route structure. Seismic lifeline routes are designated as essential to life safety services after seismic events.
Snohomish County plans to complete topographic surveys, hydraulic analysis and soil investigation in the summer of 2018 to support scoping and design engineering of the replacement bridge.
The planned geotechnical work should not impact traffic.
Snohomish County is seeking funding sources for the Barr Creel Bridge Replacement Project.
