Mike feel free to check out my site on flickr drawbridges photostream if you haven't viewed it or already view my work.
Mike thanks for the insight even though I had been studying movable bridges of 15 years yes I do make mistakes like everyone of misinformation but not on purpose much appreciated.
I believe you have your drawings mis-labeled for these Catching Slough and South Slough Bridges.
Your sketch of “Catching Slough” shows the truss configuration for the old South Slough Bridge and it is labeled “Replaced with a Bascule Bridge” which is the case at South Slough. Catching Slough was replaced with a fixed span pre-stressed concrete bridge.
While I am not going to lie, your background on this sketch certainly looks more like the Catching Slough area vs South Slough at Charleston. However, the bridge certainly is not the Catching Slough swing bridge.
You might want to consider removing this sketch from the Catching Slough page and adding it to the old South Slough posting ( http://bridgehunter.com/or/coos/south-slough/ ).
I have attached the ODOT drawings for these respective bridges to illustrate my point as to which bridge is which.
