About the Project

The Ski Park Bridge, located along the Foothills Trail between Orting and South Prairie, is a timber bridge originally built in 1904 as a trestle along the former railroad route. Due to its age and location within a wetland, it is in need of replacement. The Pierce County bridge engineers recommended the complete replacement of the existing bridge with a new two-span, prestressed concrete girder bridge which will have an estimated 100-year useful life. The County is moving forward with that recommendation. 

Currently, the project is at 30% design with construction scheduled for the summer of 2025. We anticipate the trail to be closed for approximately 6 months for the replacement.
