Overview
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.

How You Benefit
