Bridge construction funded
The Washington State Department of Transportation has allotted over $12 million towards painting, replacing, and rehabilitating bridges across Washington.
Among the bridges slated for renewal are King County's Miller River and Williams Avenue bridges.
In addition, the Silverton and Crescent bridges of Snohomish County will also receive federal funds.
The bridges needing renewal were selected by a nine-member committee of engineers from different agencies.
The funds were made available to Washington through a program included in the Intermodal Surface Transportation Act.
In King County, the Miller River bridge was allotted $75,600, and Renton's Williams Avenue bridge was given $82,000 for improvement.
In Snohomish county, the approved budget for the Crescent bridge is $250,000, and the Silverton bridge has $850,000 for repairs.
