Buses, semi trucks too heavy for aging Puyallup River Bridge
TACOMA- Within the next week, Tacoma Public Works Director Kurtis Kingsolver says new weight restrictions will be in place for the aging Puyallup River Bridge. Built in 1924, Kingsolver says it’s considered structurally deficient and a recent inspection found cracking in the gusset plate, a critical piece that helps the bridge hold weight of the deck and traffic.
