Okanogan County Public Works has posted a 4 ton (8,000 pound) weight limit on the Park City Loop Road bridge over the Nespelem River at milepost 4.96, approximately ½ mile from the intersection with Gold Lake Road.  This 72-year old bridge was constructed with a concrete superstructure on a wood piling substructure.  The wood substructure is failing.  Public Works will inspect the bridge weekly.

Funding options and applications for replacing the structure are currently underway.

If you need any further information please call Okanogan County Public Works at (509) 422-7300.
