Bridge currently closed for reconstruction. From top of Column entire timber approach viewed to be gone. New piers in water.

The photos were buried in one of the consultant/contractor websites/databases somewhere. I have found similar goodies and even bridge plans from other states. Haven't found too much in Oregon, but some of the other states have consultant/contractor sections that can be very lucrative to anyone willing to blindly go searching through them.

Nathan,

I am courious where you found those photos of the Lewis and Clark River Bridge. You posted them on the 3rd of May.

Did you contact someone at ODOT or where they on a project page somewhere?
