Tribe, WSDOT mark groundbreaking of Puyallup River bridge

State, local and Puyallup Tribal officials held a groundbreaking ceremony on Wednesday, Feb. 18, for the next Interstate 5 project in Tacoma.

The ceremony starts a three-year construction project that will add a commuter lane along I-5, increase access to tribal properties and tie into an associated project from M Street to Portland Avenue that started construction last summer.

The new onramp and bridge will be constructed just south of the existing I-5 lanes between Portland and Port of Tacoma at a cost of $296 million.

Dignitaries at the ceremony included: Hans Zeiger, 25th District Representative; Bill Sterud, Puyallup Tribe of Indians Chairman; David Boe, Tacoma Deputy Mayor; Lynn Peterson, Secretary of Transportation; Scott Williams, Hamilton Construction President and Kevin Dayton, Olympic Region Administrator.
