Bridges old and new over the Duwamish



Here is the light rail bridge that has just been built over the Duwamish river.  The yellow structure on the other side is the gangry moving on to the next section

It looks like crossing the river was nbd.

From the SoundTrasit gallery we get a picture of how they built over the river from the north bank of the Duwamish. " ... using a balanced cantilever method of construction. This method involves using two cranes, including the small one in the photo on the top of the bridge. The cranes place on pre-cast concrete segment on each side of the bridge pier at a time to keep the structure balanced."

Just down the river bank we found these old piers left over from a bridge of the past.
