Tacoma bridge gets the OK to reopen after crash

UPDATE: 1:10 p.m. | Tacoma officials said a bridge that was damaged in a collision Sunday and closed for inspection could reopen Monday.

Assistant Public Works Director Jeff Jenkins told The News Tribune the damage did not require urgent repair. He says it can wait until the city has funding to renovate the 87-year-old bridge.

ORIGINAL POST | A two-car, rear-end crash in Tacoma damaged and closed the Puyallup River Bridge Sunday, pending inspection, according to the Tacoma News Tribune.

No one was seriously hurt in the wreck, according to police spokeswoman Loretta Cool, but the crash damaged pillars on the bridge, which connects Tacoma and Fife via Eells Street.

Engineers are expected to check the bridge Monday, KIRO reports.

Built in 1928, the bridge has been damaged before. Vehicles over 10 tons, including trucks and buses, already were banned from using the bridge, according to the City of Tacoma’s website.
