Why is WSDOT fixing the bridges over the Yakima River near Mabton?
Both bridges crossing SR 241 over the Yakima River Bridge in Mabton are decades old and in need of repair.

The End Result
This project will remove the weight restrictions and restore the structural integrity of the bridges.

Needs & benefits

  • Freight Mobility - The current bridges cannot carry legal loads. Improvements will eliminate these restrictions and allow legal loads to cross.
  • Safety - Retrofitting the bridges will make the structures seismic compliant.
