This summer, BNSF’s century-old Salmon Bay Rail Bridge in Seattle received $25 million from the Infrastructure for Rebuilding America grant program. This generous funding, in addition to $70 million from BNSF, will rehabilitate the iconic bridge and ensure it remains operational for 50 more years. It’s imperative that the Salmon Bay Rail Bridge—a gateway to the busiest navigation locks in the country—remain in peak condition for both rail and maritime use. The grant is great news for the region and received strong support from Senators Maria Cantwell and Patty Murray, the Washington Congressional delegation, the Washington State Department of Transportation, and other regional agencies and organizations. Cheers for 50 more years!
