Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Beverly Railroad Bridge was constructed by the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroad in 1909 during its Pacific Extension. In 1906, The Milwaukee Road began construction on its transcontinental rail line from Chicago, Illinois to Tacoma, Washington, which was completed three years later. The bridge crosses over the Columbia River and was built on concrete piers 85 feet above the water to provide clearance for any river traffic. The spans include 14 Warren deck trusses, one Parker through truss, and deck plate girders on the approaches. When the railroad electrified in the 1920s, supports for the catenary were added to the bridge. When the railroad ceased using electric locomotives in 1972, the catenary was removed, the supports were kept in place.show more
