Littlerock Road Bridge Closed For Safety

Continued heavy truck use forces second closure for safety. The bridge on Littlerock Road SW in south Thurston County was closed again today for safety after briefly opening on Wednesday to passenger vehicles. Despite signs limiting speeds and restricting heavy vehicles from the bridge after temporary repairs were completed, several heavy trucks were seen using the bridge. The bridge was closed to all vehicle traffic this morning to protect the public and prevent any damage to the temporary repairs that continued heavy vehicle use could cause.
