This is the third bridge to exit Selah from the south to Yakima (aka N. Yakima in the early 1900s). The first bridge was built in 1905 and destroyed in the flood of 1906. The second bridge was constructed in 1907 and abandoned after the completion of the third in 1947. The third bridge was modified to 4 lanes in 1999 to accommodate the I 82 freeway.
