Interstate 82 Descriptions


I-82 crosses Selah Creek, just north of Selah over the Fred G. Redmon Bridge. At the time it was constructed in 1971, the twin-arch bridge was the longest concrete arch bridge in North America. The bridge is 1337 feet long (407 m), and rises 325 feet (99 m) above the canyon floor. The arch spans (excluding approach spans) are 549 feet long (167 m).

There are scenic overlooks at the Northern end on the upgrade leading out of the Kittitas County. Rest Areas are at Selah Creek adjacent to the Redmon bridge and at Prosser in the lower Yakima Valley.

The brief section (11 mile, 17 km) of I-82 in Oregon is designated the McNary Highway, as it passes just below the McNary Dam on the Columbia River.
