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 compelled to appreciate Bridges More and read about Its, Builder Conde McCullough. Though I have always ben 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(though I will read about any history).

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.

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.

Posted March 5, 2018

And it is not just this bridge I am speaking for every neglected historic bridges no matter what design though some can not be saved I am glad to see people try to rehabilitate bridges in derelict condition.

Posted March 5, 2018

It is so sad to see bridges like this so many years of neglect and forgotten ever since the new highway was put in the 1960s.
