UPDATED: Milroy Bridge over Puyallup River closed Tuesday, May 31

The Milroy Bridge over the Puyallup River will be closed from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 31, for a structural inspection.

The state Department of Transportation and Pierce County Public Works and Utilities inspect the steel truss bridge every other year to ensure it is safe for the 11,000 vehicles that use it daily.

During the closure, crews will also finish concrete deck repairs.

The bridge was built in 1931 and connects state Route 167/River Road East with North Levee Road East at 66th Avenue East.
