Bridge to the Beach reopen at Chambers Creek

You can stroll the beach or watch the incoming storms again from the waterfront at Pierce County’s Chambers Creek properties.

The $3.8 million Bridge to the Beach reopened over the weekend after closure due to a train derailment, the county reported.

The bridge, which provides access to about 2.5 miles of Puget Sound waterfront, is open from dawn to dusk.

It was closed Feb. 26 after two trains sideswiped each other, causing several cars to derail from the BNSF tracks that run along the edge of the property.
