As of the posting date of 5/31/17 the Meyers Bridge is destroyed. In Feb. 2016 a flood took out the bridge

The above link shows the damaged bridge

Locals have told me that because of the tight right turn there were many accidents of hitting the bridge. A field trip to the bridge verifies that this is so. This prompted road engineers to abandon this section. Because of teen age parties the bridge is closed to foot traffic.

In my research I got two contradicting dates of when the bridge was destroyed First date is 1906 according to Yakima Museum. The other is 1964 based on the Whitnall family. They claim that their dad, Jack Whitnall was working for Boise Cascade as promo-man and took this picture at the same time.

I would like to verify this. Any help would be apppreciated

BTW I have family permission to post this picture.

Some brave soul walked in from the west end and took this picture. Considering the earth here is a dam with water waiting to break through again, this picture was pretty risky to take.
