Yes, the concrete pylons south of the current Stossel Bridge belonged to the former Stossel Bridge built in circa 1915. Online plans through the King County Road Services archive show that the old bridge was at a slight east-southeast angle to the current west-east alignment. And the east approach was curved 90 degrees to the south as the old road followed the east bank of the river. The prior bridge appears to have been a steel span using pin and eye-bar construction and had a wood plank road deck.

A search "Stossel Bridge" at the web site below will pull up numerous plans for the current 1951 bridge and some plans for the prior bridge.

Does anyone know about the bridge footings just to the south of this bridge? Was there an older bridge there?
