Murray Morgan Bridge Closures Rescheduled

Closures to vehicle traffic on the Murray Morgan Bridge (11th Street in Tacoma) are planned to allow for dredging to be conducted in the Thea Foss Waterway. This dredging activity has been delayed by one day from the last announcement and now will occur Feb. 5-6, and Feb. 12-13, from 6 a.m.to 6 p.m. During these times the lift span of the bridge will be raised to allow marine vessels to pass; however, vessels are urged to use caution while passing due to the presence of barges under the bridge.

During the closures there will be limited pedestrian access from ‘A’Street to the elevator and stairs only, with all other pedestrian access closed until work is complete.
