Bridge #28

GNRY officials inspect the damaged remains of bridge #28 during the summer of 1948.  Looking on the down grade.  Picture provided by the Skykomish Historical Society.

June 2012 photo showing approximate location of bridge #28.  The bridge crossed the creek just out of view if this picture to the right.  You can see where the line used to run prior to the 1948 flood on the right.   GN relocated the line to the left and eliminated this bridge completely.  I'm standing on the revised grade location looking on the up grade approximately where the basalt rock face is in the above photo.
