WSDOT officials estimates SR 410 at the bridge will be closed for several days.

The damage was caused by a vehicle traveling westbound.

The minimum and maximum measurements may fall inside or outside the traveling lanes, including shoulders. If an operator has an oversized load between the minimum and maximum measurements they are responsible for checking the vertical clearance prior to travel.
