State chooses local bridges to be replaced and repaired

The state Department of Transportation announced Wednesday that it’s chosen 70 bridges to be replaced or repaired with $130 million from the Federal Highway Fund.

Local selections include $10 million to replace the Puyallup River Bridge, about $2.4 million for a new North Fork Muck Creek Bridge on 8th Avenue East southwest of Graham, and $ 9.6 million to redo Sumner’s White River-Truss Bridge.

The deck rehabilitation of the Union Avenue Viaduct will get $3 million of the funds, and the Schuster Parkway-Ruston Way Bridge will get about $1.9 million for the same project.
