Deception Pass Bridge Painting
At 80+ years old, the Deception Pass Bridge and Canoe Pass Bridge are looking really good! But, it's time for a paint job. So, starting in May of 2019, crews spent all but the winter months sanding, scraping and painting the two bridges. They'll be painting the bridge the same color it is now, Evergreen Green. They hope to finish the project in 2021
Contractors have equipment on site and there are warning signs. They’ve also closed one lane of Canoe Pass Bridge from 8pm to 6 am Monday through Thursday. Other changes according to the Washington Department of Transportation, are:
- Only one sidewalk available for those walking across the bridge.
- Limited parking near the bridge
- A containment system will be hanging from the structure (to keep paint/debris from falling into the water).
- Noise day and night for those who live in or visit the area.
Consider turning west at the traffic light south of Deception Pass to see the bridge. Look for the signs that point to North Beach. A Discover Pass or $10 parking is required.
