BNSF bridge replacement bound for Drano Lake

Steel structure to float Columbia River, replace century-old bridge

Vancouver, Wash. August 26, 2020

Crews worked late into the night on Monday to transfer a newly-built railroad bridge from the Vigor industrial yard at the Columbia Business Center to a waiting barge in the Columbia River. The bridge is bound for Drano Lake, about 60 miles east of Vancouver on the north side of the Columbia River, where it will replace a 113-year-old bridge that carries the BNSF Railway line across the mouth of the lake where it empties into the Columbia.
