PNWR - Rock Creek Trestle

The timber structure that was lost to fire in 2015 is in fact in process of being rebuilt. I currently reside in the area and the trestle as of late 2018 is over halfway complete. It is a steel and concrete trestle being constructed in the exact same place and of similar length to the structure that was built in 1932.
