Wishkah River Bridge
Posted February 16, 2017, by Mike Garland (Rapier342 [at] comcast [dot] net)

According to the dedication plaque on the bridge it was built in 1950. L.E. Hough is listed as the City Engineer. The builder was the Roy T. Earley Construction Company of Tacoma, Washington. The name of the bridge is the Heron Street Bridge, not the Wishkah River Bridge. It was designed by the General Engineering Company Inc. from Seattle, Washington.
