In January 2015, WSDOT began construction on a new State Route 162 Puyallup River Bridge near Orting that would replace the 81-year-old McMillin Bridge, which had reached the end of its lifespan.
Engineers designed and built a new, wider bridge that meets current engineering and safety standards. The new SR 162 Puyallup River Bridge opened to traffic on Sept. 20, 2015.
The new bridge has wider lanes and shoulders that reduce the potential for collisions. The new bridge is designed to be widened in the future if funds become available.
