Milwaukee Road "Priest Rapids" Spur

Shown is the contractor's bridge prior to the start of building of Priest Rapids Dam in July of 1956, south of Beverly. After its completion, it carried a Milwaukee Road spur from the Hanford Branch, which left the mainline across the river from Beverly. The bridge shown was dismantled in 1961. You can make out the Hanford Branch in the background.
