BNSF replaced its Washougal River Railroad Bridge in Camas, WA, using an innovative technique to replace the bridge spans. Rather than lifting new spans into place, they built spans right next to the bridge, slid the old spans to the side across beams, and then slid the new ones into place. The project was part of BNSF’s ongoing work to maintain and upgrade its rail network to keep traffic flowing safely and efficiently.
