Cedar River Trail Bridge #2
Posted December 11, 2017, by Anonymous

While part of the Cedar River Rail Trail, this is actually a former highway bridge. When Washington highway SR-169 was realigned and widened in the early 1990s, 2 railroad bridges were removed, one a through truss bridge similar to Cedar River Trail Bridges #1 and #3 and a through plate girder rail bridge just to the west where the former 2 lane highway passed under the railroad line at an angle. During the road widening project the railroad grade/trail was realigned to allow for the wider highway. To cross the highway, the trail alignment now crosses over this former highway bridge, then loops back under it and the newer wider highway bridge.
