Stetattle Creek Bridge

The steel bridges on this railroad-turned-haul-road route are all mish-mash of spans, and considering the railhead was at Rockport, a town along the Great Northern's route, I would not be surprised if Seattle City Light purchased spans from GN and reused them.

This is just conjecture, though.

I would think this one would date to the 1890s, but the riveted connection implies 20th century. A mystery for sure. Sure a nice bridge!
