Transportation officials closed one lane on Seattle's Aurora Bridge after deterioration was found on a steel beam known as a "stringer".{ }The Washington State Department of Transportation says there's no timeline for when the lane will be back open. This isn't your ordinary fix, according to WSDOT bridge engineer Mark Gaines. “It’s really challenging from a construction standpoint,” he said.
