Prescott's Dallas Eggers remembers relying on a handful of spots for a drink of water when he was a kid playing in the mid-'60s. There was the baseball diamond, the cemetery and what was then known as Tourist Park, now Freedom Park, which was only three blocks from his house. "That was our playground," Eggers said, now president of the Prescott chapter of the Pierce County Historical Association.
A roughly 11-month, $1 million U.S. Highway 10 bridge rehabilitation project should cause few headaches for area residents. The project — which includes replacing expansion joints, concrete deck repairs and other minor maintenance for the 25-year-old bridge — is currently restricting traffic to one lane on each side. The construction started in early September, and is expected to end in June 2019.
