The White River Bridge (SR-410) received a full paint job in 2018. Plans are in works to install a pedestrian bridge (Foothills Trail) in 2021 just up river at a former road bridge site next to the old NP/BN Buckley Viaduct. Footings for both the Buckley Viaduct and the former road bridge are still intact. The plan is to use the road bridge footings to support the trail bridge, which is planned to be able to carry EMS/Police vehicles should the current White River Bridge be closed for emergency reasons.

Just in case anyone is wondering, the white triangle lines drawn on the vertical members and sway bracing in the below photos are guides used for applying heat during heat straightening. See the last video on this page: http://www.historicbridgerestoration.com/restorationmedia/vi...

Damage was more severe than they originally thought thus the costs for repair have gone up. Temporary fix in place for now. This bridge recently made a list of bridges to fix/resurface/replace by ~ 2020. There is too much traffic in the area already and no new infrastructure to handle any planned future growth.

Took a hit the other day.


"... closed for several days after a routine inspection Saturday revealed damage to the bridge’s overhead support structure."

"We do have a pretty significant bend," said Travis Phelps, spokesman for the state Transportation Department.

But they plan to make repairs. Rest at link above.
