STORY

Lake Creek Bridge by Jamie HooperBuilt in 1928 for $3,155. Highly stacked logging trucks broke the end portals, which were repaired in the 70s. Full renovations in 1984 included replacing the wood floor with concrete slabs. The prefab slabs were installed using a crane. Concrete was also added to supports and approaches.
