Koteewi Park Bridge
Posted November 17, 2016, by Nathan Holth (webmaster [at] historicbridges [dot] org)

I stopped to see the bridge, about a week before the ribbon cutting. Anyway, the campground this bridge is in is seasonal and you may find the entrance gated off if you visit. I had to park and walk back to the bridge from the gate. Not a big deal, but just a heads up.

Also, this project was designed and bid to use all-riveted construction (at least that was my understanding). However many of the connections (I am guessing ones put together in the field) for the lattice truss were bolted. I was a bit surprised to see this.
