BNSF replacing century-old Washougal River bridge

VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) — The BNSF Railway says it plans to spend $10 million to replace a 1908 bridge over the Washoughal River at Camas.

The company said the work is part of a $235 million capital plan for its Washington rail system, which in turn is part of a billion-dollar plan along the railroad company’s corridor between Chicago and the Pacific Northwest.

The Columbian reports traffic will be maintained during construction, beginning this year and expected to be complete by early 2016.

The 550-foot-long bridge has been upgraded over the years.
