Bridge between Sunnyside and Mabton to reopen

YAKIMA COUNTY, Wash. -- Traffic on the main road connecting Sunnyside and Mabton will reopen Thursday. It closed more than a month ago for emergency bridge repairs.

The bridge over the Yakima River on State Route 241 closed in July. Cracks were found in the deck.

Crews reinforced the bridge with steel beams.

The weight limit is back to 14 tons. It was lowered to three tons.
