Skagit River Bridge
Posted April 21, 2012, by Dave Henley (None, sorry)

Hi, guys! I'm a born and raised Skagitonian (55 years). This is NOT a former GN bridge. This is a former NP bridge (between Sedro-Woolley and Clear Lake), built on the original Seattle, Lakeshore & Eastern back in the day. The GN crossed the Skagit between Mount Vernon and Burlington (as BNSF still does east of I-5 & Riverside Drive). Dave (360) 676-1694

I believe that was part of a branch line for the former Northern Pacific Railroad. Here are some images. The southernmost span is a fixed swing span. Build date unknown.
