Description 

This bridge is one of several in the area that were a part of the Weyerhaeuser Company Mainline exclusively used for transport of raw material from timberlands to mill without using public highways. I spoke to a man on this bridge who remembers a trestle for a logging railroad that existed prior to the company deciding to switch to hauling by trucks partially motived by washouts that took out several wooden trestles including the one here. From the looks of things it will happen again.

Weyerhaeuser Road Bridge
Posted August 12, 2012, by K. A. Erickson

This bridge is no more. Driving past I saw just a pile of rubble on either side of the creek. The holding company that owns the timber lands had engineers on it in Fall of 2011 measuring it while they were demolishing another beleaguered bridge across the White River. That other bridge can be viewed below and if there is interest I could add it ...

You can note the 3 and 4 images on the above bridge to see where exactly I was.
