Inventory: Lists | Log | References | Condensed | Search

This is a list of the only bridge from the suspension bridge inventory crossing Tahoma Creek. Please note that different rivers with the same name will be grouped together. For example, selecting 'Bear Creek' shows bridges across several different Bear Creeks. Also, similarly named rivers are grouped separately. For example, 'River Dee' (UK) bridges are grouped separately from 'Dee River' (Australia) bridges. Wherever you see a "Bridgemeister ID" number you can click it to isolate the bridge on its own page.

Notes
  • Damaged by flooding, November 2006. From a News Tribune (Tacoma, Washington) article on June 11, 2007: "Trail crews last week discovered that supporting cables at one end of the suspension bridge may have been weakened by flooding last November."
  • Replaced a drooping catwalk-style suspension bridge that was anchored on different foundations still present at the bridge site. Both bridges appear to have coexisted for some time around 1995.
