The City of Tacoma reopened the city's Fishing Wars Memorial Bridge on Saturday, September 14, 2019. The bridge closed last year to upgrade and replace the bearings, add new street lighting, add sidewalks and bike lanes and a new gateway structure. Locally, residents traditionally have called it the Puyallup River Bridge, but the Tacoma City Council passed a resolution in May to rename the bridge to Fishing Wars Memorial Bridge. The Puyallup Tribe of Indians and the City of Tacoma dedicated the bridge on August 9.
