EPHRATA, Wash. – The Bureau of Reclamation has re-opened the West Fork Bridge, located one mile southwest of Conconullly. The West Fork Bridge had been closed to all motorized traffic since August 11 to reconstruct the bridge. The closure was estimated to last until late-September, but the construction work was completed early.

The West Fork Bridge connects the cabins and lands south of the West Fork of Salmon Creek to the West Fork Road. The bridge is owned by Reclamation.
