Replacing the Bridge Street bridge is a big deal in Sumner. Keep track of timelines, milestones and more as we bridge the past and future together.


The Bridge Street bridge replacement is on time and on budget. Here’s the schedule of what’s coming next:

  • Remove temporary work bridge – January 2018 (in fact, it’s already gone!)
  • Complete concrete deck of new bridge – May 2018
  • Complete utilities – Ongoing
  • Switch traffic over to new bridge – August 2018
  • Remove old bridge – Fall 2018
  • Build out remaining amenities of new bridge – 2018-2019

April 2018 Update

Take a look at pictures of the prep work and pouring of the concrete for the new bridge’s deck. That’s a lot of rebar that we’ll never see again!

January 2018 Update

Late at night, semi’s brought in huge, 65′ girders to form the base of the new bridge. Take a look as cranes and workers on the temporary construction bridge work to put the girders into place.

If you’d like to see Doug Beagle’s presentation to the City Council on the bridge’s progress to date, watch the January 16th City Council meeting. The presentation starts at 3:00 minutes.
