SR 124 - Monument Drive Railroad Crossing - Construct Bridge - Complete October 2017

Project news

Overview 
WSDOT built a bridge over the Union Pacific railroad crossing to allow SR 124 traffic to cross above the railroad. Monument Drive is now connected to SR 124, which improves safety for traffic entering SR 124.
