BGCM - North Fork Clearwater River Bridge
Posted May 3, 2021, by John Marvig (marvigj27 [at] gmail [dot] com)

The trusses and girders were definitely moved here in 1927. The girders appear to be a standard 1890s design, with a third girder line added. As the NPRHA continues to add more AFEs, we will likely find more information on these spans. However, they are not currently published.
