Whatcom Creek Bridge Replacement

Whatcom Creek Bridge Replacement

Our first bridge project! The north Railroad Avenue Trail bridge crossing Whatcom Creek in Bellingham caught fire in 2012. The bridge was originally part of a railway crossing but was damaged in the fire and needed to be replaced. Faber, with the help of Sicklesteel Cranes, bolted together the two halves of the new, 38,000-pound clear-span steel bridge and placed it over the creek. The 110 foot long and 10 foot wide pedestrian/cycling bridge will soon be reopened to the public. We are thrilled to have a part in reopening the well used connector trail.
