Wishkah River

This classic swing bridge is located in downtown Aberdeen. It was originally part of the Grays Harbor Line of the Northern Pacific\'s 16th Sub extending from Elma to Tulips.

Realize for a moment the challenges in this bridge\'s day: the river had to remain navigable yet it was impractical to gain the elevation required for a bridge that would provide sufficient clearance as was later done for many of the area\'s highway bridges.
