Duportail Bridge Construction is Right on Schedule
If you drive on the 240 Bypass, you've probably noticed the 400 foot crane reaching to the sky in the Duportail area. Workers say the project is moving along nicely and on schedule. Workers like the fact that there isn't a lot of traffic to deal with this project, but residents near that area are wondering just how much new traffic the finished bridge will bring. Eventually, 4 lanes of traffic will be flowing over the Yakima River, making easier for many drivers to get from point A to point B without having to hear, "you can't get there from here." The sound wall decorated with river rock sounds pretty cool, I think! You read more about it below.
