SR 26 - Railroad Bridge Deck Repair - Project map

This map shows the bridge is located 15 miles east of Othello.  The detour around the closure adds 14 miles to the trip.

The 32 mile detour rerouted traffic around the 17.5 mile closure due to the bridge replacement at MP 57.7.  Eastbound traffic at Othello was turned south on SR 17 to SR 260, then east to Connell, then north on US 395 back to SR 26.  Westbound traffic from Washtucna followed the same route in reverse – US 395 south to Connell, west on SR 260 to SR 17 and north to SR 26 at Othello.  The detour added about 14 miles to the trip.  

Alternative routes include Eastbound traffic to stay on I-90 to just beyond Ritzville and turn south on SR 261 to SR 26.  Westbound traffic on SR 26 from Pullman would turn north at Washtucna on SR 261 to I-90.
