The Annual Bridge Reports have been completed in compliance with WAC 136-20-060, which requires that each County Engineer furnish a written resume of the county's bridge inspection efforts to the county legislative authority. It is also the intention of this report that information presented here be incorporated into a comprehensive program strategy to preserve the county's roadways. These reports summarize the status of the Whatcom County Bridge Program.
Whatcom County's bridge inventory is vital in connecting the nearly 974 miles of County roads and providing for the safe and efficient movement of people and freight. Specifically, bridges on key transportation and freight corridors are monitored closely to prevent bridges on these routes from becoming restricted.
