Grant Avenue Bridge
Prosser's first bridge across the Yakima was a wood and iron structure built at Grant Avenue in 1887. It was destroyed in November 1906 when a large timber carried by flood crest knocked out several of its piers. A terrified pedestrian rode one of the freed spans four miles before both were deposited on the downstream bank. An impressive, eight span, steel bridge was built at the Grant Avenue crossing in 1908.
