Mabton bridge open again

MABTON – After two weeks of emergency repair work, and a full closure since July, SR-241 over the Mabton-Sunnyside Bridge was reopened to motorists this afternoon, Aug. 28.

Restoration work on the bridge entering Mabton started Tuesday, Aug. 12.

Crews reinforced the bridge with steel beams and restored the weight limit to 14 tons.

Just prior to the emergency closure, the weight limit had been reduced to three tons due to safety concerns.
