To clarify it is the western approach trestle that washed out not the main span. The river plowed a new course during the floods.
Status per Olympic Discovery Trail website
"The Bridge and this section of trail is owned by the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe. The tribe is following two paths. One is an “as was” repair of the damaged section that will be paid for largely with their insurance coverage. The goal would be to reopen the broken span this summer, and they are close to a firm plan and schedule. The long term plan is to replace the entire west side trestle with a structure that will withstand the vagaries of the river across the active flood plain. They believe the truss bridge, dating to the 30’s, is adequately anchored, but the west trestle, with its 16 foot pile spacing, acts as a “rake” to debris brought down by the river and is not sustainable. The long term project will take years and much funding. (4/13/2015)"
Is this the only wooden through Howe truss still around? (Not counting covered bridges, of course.)
