Green River Bridge

I was going to update this with the link when I got back.

A friend called to tell me about it. He knows I follow these sorts of things.

The bridge is currently barricaded with concrete blocks, section of fence, and a loose pile of asphalt. A box attached to the "Bridge Closed" sign has fliers explaining what is going on.

The county wanted to look pro-active in light of the I-5 Skagit Bridge even though they were going to close it anyways. This is one of three interesting, IMHO, road/bridge projects in King that's underway this season. I am in route to visit another before the work gets started.

The Alvord T Bridge has two approaches, both timber stringers. I added that to this info here. The South is longer than the North. The steel is stamped "Carnegie".

Visit this bridge quick if you want. It is to be demolished with no replacement this summer!
