Photo of the Week: Bridge to nowhere
King County began to take down the Alvord T. Bridge in Kent this week. Demolition of the bridge and paving of the turn-around are expected to be complete by mid-October.
The bridge, originally built in 1914, spans the Green River on 78th Avenue South at the southern city limits.
The bridge had low traffic volumes. It was rated as one of the most deficient bridges in the state of Washington and classified as structurally deficient and functionally obsolete.
