About Me 

Email: Leslie [dot] Trick [at] gmail [dot] com

My Fascination With bridges Started Relatively Not to long ago. Though I always thought bridges were interesting my interest grew on started Memorial Day 2017. When my family drove Down Old US 30 from Pendleton back home and stopped a the Perry Arch Bridge it's design

amazed and to appreciate Bridges More and read about Its, Builder Conde McCullough. Though I have always been into history Witch is unusual for a 14 year old boy like me. This one I had really never studied this important aspect before. Now Bridges along with transportation and local related historical subjects are my main focus.

Well Lawmakers are back talking about replacement it would be bad to see this bridge replaced by a UCEB.

More news on replacement the bridge will be persevered.

I meant to put timber string but I accidentally put steel stringer and didn't check the page before I published it.

Posted June 15, 2018

Both bridges were build in the same and by reading your comment and comparing the image to google street view imagery, I have found out that this is the actual location

of the two bridges not under Phillips Reservoir like I thought originally thought. Thank you for correcting the location.

Posted June 15, 2018

This bridge will be dismantled next week hopefully it will be relocated and preserved instead being thrown in the scrap bin.

Here is Joseph Strauss's proposed design for the Golden Gate bridge the reason this design did not work is because the the public thought it was ugly.

okay I will remember that.

Bridge comment
Posted April 13, 2018

Thank you

Posted April 13, 2018

Okay I have never seen a swing bridge with that design are there any other swing bridges with that design on the site?

Posted April 3, 2018

Truss bridges can be moved to a site easier than parts for a UCEB Witch makes them more practical than UCEBs And also Truss bridges are much more attractive

Posted April 1, 2018

Yes that thought did not even cross my mind. By the way good job on the bridge.

Posted March 6, 2018

I think the engine and the majority of the cars were of the bridge I heard the river is like a wind tunnel so the train must of blew over I would not know for sure because I live in oregon but I have Ben reading about the accident.

Posted March 5, 2018

I think it is probably this bridge.
