VANCOUVER, Wash. — A key highway bridge north of Vancouver, Wash., is going to remain closed while a replacement is built.
Clark County officials have scheduled a news conference Friday to announce the permanent closure of Klineline Bridge. The span carries State Route 99 over Salmon Creek and carries about 14,000 cars a day.
The bridge about a quarter-mile east of Interstate 5 was closed because of high water and stormy weather on Dec. 2. Officials say construction of a replacement will begin early next year.
