Comments Solicited on Kilisut Harbor Bridge

By Karen Robes Meeks

US Coast Guard officials are asking the public to provide input on a Washington State Department of Transportation proposal to build a replacement bridge across Kilisut Harbor in Jefferson County.

The transportation agency wants to take out the current bridge, which consists of two culverts and causeway, and put in a new non-moveable bridge made of four, 110-foot long spans and supported by three bents. For more information visit

To weigh in on the project, contact the bridge administrator Steve Fischer via email at or call 206-220-7282 by no later than Oct. 31.
