A single lane on the state Route 302 Purdy Bridge will be closed Tuesday morning while crews inspect power lines below the bridge, according to the state Department of Transportation.

Crews from WSDOT and Peninsula Power and Light will be using a large inspection truck that takes up an entire lane.

Between 8 a.m. and noon, flaggers will direct drivers through one-way alternating traffic.

Vehicles more than 10,000 gross weight will not be allowed on the bridge during work hours, WSDOT reports.
