Narrows Bridge needs painting already

September 29th, 2009 by ed friedrich

Crews painting cables will close a lane this week on the new Tacoma Narrows Bridge. OK, it’s not that new anymore, but it seems like it. It opened more than two years ago, on July 16, 2007. And bridges are as bad as ships. You never get through painting before you have to start over again.

Anyway, drivers can expect the HOV lane to be closed from from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday, unless it rains. Looking at the forecast, they might not get any painting done before Saturday.

    When are they going to install the lights on the bridge that they have been talking about for a year?
