Over in Puyallup, WSDOT will be shutting down the Highway 167 bridges over the Puyallup River on Meridian the weekend of July 11. Although not in Sumner, this closure will affect traffic and routes for a lot of Sumner residents as well as the region. WSDOT will close both north- and south-bound on Meridian at 9 pm on Friday, July 11, and expect to reopen the route on Sunday, July 13, at 2 pm. WSDOT has identified alternate routes, but you will want to allow more time than usual to travel this route.
We’re thankful that WSDOT is getting us information to pass along to you. If you have further questions, please contact WSDOT directly for the best information: Brenden Clarke, Project Manager, 360-357-2606, or Claudia Bingham Baker, Communications Manager, 360-357-2789.
