  • High Steel Bridge

    The High Steel Bridge. South Fork if the Skokomish River.
    Just as I had gotten there to take in the setting and for some quiet time and to shoot, two Mason County Sheriffs blast in and onto the bridge responding to a call that there might be a possible jumper. Thankfully that was not the case. After searching the vicinity for a while, it turned out that the guy was wanted and was hiding under the bridge in the forest. My timing is either good or bad, as I happened to have my quad with me to search the area just in case.
    High Steel Bridge is a truss arch bridge that spans the south fork of the Skokomish River on Forest Service road #2202 near the city of Shelton, Washington in Mason County, Washington. The High Steel Bridge was the second of two large steel arches to be erected by the Simpson Logging Company on Forest Service land in 1929. These bridges carried a single railroad track across formidable chasms opening up expansive tracts of previously inaccessible timber on the Olympic Peninsula.
    The High Steel Bridge's 685 ft (209 m) steel riveted webbed arch rises 375 ft (114 m) above the Skokomish River's South Fork, placing it among the top twenty highest bridges in the United States. The building materials—which included a considerable amount of concrete for the footings, lumber for the decking, concrete forms, and railings, and 750 tons of steel—were hauled by rail across the recently completed Vance Creek Bridge.
    The American Bridge Company, a subsidiary of the U.S. Steel Products Company at the time of construction, was the contractor for the $131,000 structure. The Simpson Logging Company spent an additional $100,000 in lumber in the construction of the bridge. The total cost of the bridge was paid from the proceeds of timber subsequently hauled across it.
