Drivers will follow these detour routes after both the northbound and southbound SR 167 Puyallup River Bridges (Meridian) close from 8 p.m. Friday, Aug. 7, through 5 a.m. Monday, Aug. 10.
The closures will allow crews to move the no longer used 1925 truss bridge to adjacent WSDOT land for up to four years.
WSDOT’s goal is to offer the steel truss to another jurisdiction for another purpose, perhaps as a pedestrian or bicycle facility. If unsuccessful, WSDOT will recycle the steel.
