State Route 10 between Cle Elum and Ellensburg may remain closed until mid-November, according to Washington State Department of Transportation spokeswoman Summer Derrey.

The road first closed to through traffic in May so construction crews could replace the aging Bristol Fill bridge, also known as Taylor Bridge. WSDOT hopes to have the project completed by Nov. 12. But crews need dry conditions to finish striping on the bridge, and the project’s timing remains weather dependent.

In addition to striping, construction crews still need to add barriers and guard rails to the bridge at milepost 90 (about two miles east of the intersection of state Route 10 and state Route 970).

High fire danger shut down all but very minor work on the bridge and other WSDOT projects in the area for about two weeks in September and October, said WSDOT’s Brian White.

WSDOT officials earlier estimated the Bristol Fill Bridge project would be complete by the end of October. 

WSDOT is allowing local traffic — including residents, farmers, rafters, anglers, bicyclists and hikers — to use state Route 10 east and west of the Bristol Fill Bridge, but through traffic is being detoured. Motorists can use Interstate 90 or a combination of state Route 970 and U.S. Highway 97 as a detour.
