Originally, the Great Northern Railroad crossed Bridge #402 where this bridge stands. On January 22, 1916, a large slide destroyed part of Bridge #402, by that time a heavy steel trestle. The bridge was temporarily repaired using heavy timbers and was back in service within a month. In the fall of 1916, the Twin Tunnels were built to relocate the railroad to a less exposed position, and the bridge was abandoned. The current bridge was built as part of the Iron Goat Trail Project, and is built on the original bridge abutments.
