Puyallup Avenue Bridge
Posted April 21, 2015, by K. A. Erickson

Eells Street is back open. I'm guessing the damage was to the previously damaged overhead bracing. Now one side is completely gone. Trucks still drive over the viaduct switching lanes eastbound not to pass but to avoid hitting bracing.
