This bridge replaces the former bridge, a 41-foot metal truss bridge, originally built in 1963 and destroyed in December 2015 when a Douglas fir came crashing down onto it.
The cost was $130,000, covered by $110,000 from Federal Lands and Transportation Program funds, and $20,000 from recreation fees the Forest Service collected at sites in the Gorge.
