DOT checks out the Benton City Bridge

Posted: Updated:

Benton City, WA-The Washington Department of Transportation Wednesday gave the Benton City Bridge its annual check-up.

A remote-controlled crane maneuvered inspectors over and under the bridge as the inspectors checked the span for cracks and any signs of stress.

While the inspectors made their way across the heavily-traveled bridge over the Yakima River, flaggers directed drivers through the work zone.

The bridge is the entrance point to the city and State Route 225 that leads to Red Mountain.
