Drivers asked to plan ahead for night closures of Purdy Spit

Drivers who use the state Route 302 bridge over Purdy Spit will encounter two total night closures of the bridge next week. The closures will allow Washington State Department of Transportation maintenance crews to make asphalt and bridge joint repairs.
