Field Value
Title Near Complete Construction of Vehicle and Railroad Bridge
Description The structure now stands completed except for the railroad tracks. The contractor built this bridge at his own expense intending to bring equipment and material directly to the shop area on the east side, but movement of the far (east) bank rendered the east piers and approach unsafe for railroad loads.
