The Chambers Covered Railroad Bridge in Cottage Grove, Oregon was moved over the Coast Fork Willamette River onto the original piers. The historic bridge was reconstructed on the east bank of the river. The original bridge was built in 1925 and the City of Cottage Grove is restoring the bridge. Two fork lifts were pushing the bridge across the river. The steel beams will be removed and the bridge will rest on the original piers.
The Chambers Covered Railroad Bridge was built to bring timber by train into the Chambers Mill. The Chambers Covered Railroad bridge is the only remaining example of the covered railroad bridges that used to dot the Oregon countryside. The Chambers Covered Railroad Bridge is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Join us in Cottage Grove when the fully restored bridge is dedicated Saturday, December 3, 2011.
