HIGHWAYS - ABANDONMENT - COUNTIES
RESPONSIBILITY OF COUNTIES FOR HIGHWAY ABANDONED BY THE STATE The bridge across the Columbia River between Kennewick and Pasco lies outside the corporate limits of both cities and can therefore be abandoned by the state under chapter 57, Laws of 1953, and the responsibility for the care and maintenance of the bridge falls upon the counties of Benton and Franklin even though neither county has a road connecting to the bridge.

STATE HIGHWAYS ‑- ABANDONMENT ‑- BRIDGES A bridge upon a state highway is a part thereof, but becomes a part of a county road, and must be maintained by the county or counties as such, upon certification by the Director of Highways to the board or boards of county commissioners of the county or counties involved that the same is no longer necessary as a part of such state highway.
