Also worth noting, the Northern Pacific bridge book lists this structure as having been built in 1960. Undoubtedly a relocated bridge.

Two truss bridges are used by the trolley. The trolley site has some inconsistent information calling into question the date of this rail line, and the original location and build dates of the bridges.
