SR 241 - Yakima River Bridge - Replacement

Status

  • Currently, the bridge is closed to all traffic until later this summer when emergency repairs to the bridge will be made.
  • This bridge replacement project is currently unfunded.

Why is WSDOT replacing this bridge?
The existing Mabton-Sunnyside bridge, crossing the Yakima River and built in 1954, is classified as a structurally deficient structure, with weight restrictions in both directions. The roadway width across the bridge is only 24 feet.

The End Result
There will be a new, wider bridge spanning the Yakima River that meets current WSDOT standards and is rated for legal highway loads.

Project Benefits

  • Freight Mobility - The current bridge cannot carry legal loads. A new bridge will eliminate these restrictions and allow legal loads to cross.
  • Safety - Replacing the existing narrow bridge with a wider structure will provide a safer roadway with wider shoulders.

What is the project timeline?
Currently, this project is unfunded and no work has been started.

Financial Information
