Riverton Bridge – new & old

Last week I walked down the Green River Trail and showed you a photo looking down the river to the Riverton Bridge.   Today, I started where I left off on the trail, which is right across from the new and old bridge site.

The old bridge has been gone almost 100 years and the new one isn’t a spring chicken either.  I found a photo on Historylink.org that they had up from the King County Archives.

Next here is a good look at the old mid river island that held the old draw bridge up.

Just a tad bit to the south and in a much better location here is the mid-century steel bridge.
