This bridge was built in 1917 by the Northern Pacific to access the Snoqualmie Falls Lbr. Co. mill. The main span was a 180' pin connected truss built by the Pencoyd Iron Works in 1896 for somewhere on the Northern Pacific main line. The next span was a 90' wooden Howe truss and finally
a 630' pile trestle. In 1925 the Howe truss was replaced in kind and covered with galvanized iron sheets. In 1955 the wooden Howe truss was replaced with two deck plate girder spans 27 and 50 feet long. In 1976 the bridge was donated to the Puget Sound Railway Historical Assn. The three spans were removed after October 1988.
This was a Northern Pacific bridge that passed to the Burlington Northern then to the Puget Sound Railway Historical Assn. I have some notes on the history of this bridge and will post it if they can be found.
