PIERCE COUNTY: Lane on Narrows Bridge to be closed temporarily

Nighttime traffic on the Tacoma Narrows Bridge will be restricted next week so crews can build a temporary walkway under the deck between the western end of the bridge and the western tower.

The right lane of the bridge will be closed to Gig Harbor-bound traffic from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. Monday through Friday, according to the state Department of Transportation.

The new walkway will create access for crews working on the new bridge.
