MILW - Walnut Street Overpass
Posted October 23, 2017, by Luke

David, I believe the bridge in the postcard you posted is of this bridge: https://bridgehunter.com/wa/kittitas/milw-lake-easton/

Reasoning being that that's a spot where the Milwaukee Road crosses both the Yakima and Northern Pacific, something that doesn't happen near Ellensburg, based on old maps.
