SR 241 - Yakima River Bridge - Replacement


Fall 2017

  • This project received funding from the 2015 Connecting Washington Revenue Package and is schedule to start construction in 2019.

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.

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?
Construction is scheduled to begin in 2019.
