KENT: Bridge over Green River closes after 99 years

June 6, 2013 

After 99 years of service, the deteriorating Alvord “T” Bridge in Kent closed Wednesday.

The bridge is one of the most deficient bridges in the state.

It had been slated to close later this month, but the date was moved up after observations that oversize load restrictions were being ignored.
