The Sunnyside-Mabton Bridge on SR 241 has been closed since July due to emergency repairs, but it will be open again by Thursday afternoon.

Restoration work on the bridge entering Mabton started Aug. 12. Crews reinforced the bridge with steel beams and restored the weight limit to 14 tons; previously restricted to 3 tons.

Motorists driving between Mabton and Sunnyside have had to use a 39-minute detour while the bridge has been closed.
