Bridge in Sumner Closed

From The News Tribune:

The City of Sumner has banned vehicles over 12 tons from the Bridge Street, or Stuck River, bridge. This move was made to extend the life of the bridge until money for a replacement can be found.

Like in most of the United States, infrastructure in the West is old. Furthermore, most of the bridges in the Puyallup Valley were never designed for the heavy truck traffic they now take, driven by the explosion of warehouses constructed recently.
