Diligent Tacoma city reporter Kris Sherman passed along this tidbit.

The 11th Street Bridge in Tacoma over the Puyallup River has reopened.

The bridge, you may recall, was closed Nov. 6 following the rain storm and subsequent flooding. The storm had dumped a large amount of wood debris at the base of each pier.

Crews inspected the bridge and found no problems, thus it’s been reopened.
