79Bear River Bridge
- Apr 3, 2001The original bridge at Bear River was a deck Howe truss with a
cluster pier supporting the spans. The company which built this
bridge was the same one that built the similarly designed Browns
Canyon bridge of the North Pacific Coast in 1876.
I've done a lot of research to come up with a scale drawing of the
NPC bridge. I'm wondering if someone has researched the Bear River
bridge and we could compare notes? I rather suspect the two are
pretty much the same. Maybe some of the details could be clarified.
