Carver Rail Bridge


Recommended Posts

Is it just me or does it look like the second bridge support has shifted from the force of the logs??

I called the Union Pacific track maintenance hotline and reported the problems. Hopefully they bring out the big guns and get that thing cleared up before the fall.

You'd be my savior if they got rid of the jam!!

Anyone catching anything lately in that neck of the woods. Dennis has been quiet. I went there a couple weeks back only to be skunked. Not even a sheepie on a piece of crawler.

I haven't gotten a good look at it.I have been using the Jordan access lately.It did look as if the jam is pushing on the bridge.
I hope your call gets some action!But then again if the bridge does go down that train won't roll past my house anymore.
Hmmm clear shot up river or a quiet neighborhood.....
Ya I hope they clear it!Who cares if the train wakes me in the middle of the night.I can sleep when I am dead. smile.gif

I had a good look at that jam on Saturday night and it's still pretty impressive. There is still no way to get past it.

Dennis, if ya put a ski jump in front of it you could make that RP fly right over it.

They took my name and number but I haven't heard anything. The lady that took my call said she would get a hold of the local track maintenance group and let them know of the problems. I tried to make it sound like the bridge was going to collapse so I would assume she made the appropriate calls.

I would assume that if it hasn't been removed yet, they probably determined that the risk of collapse wasn't as great as the cost to remove the jam.......figures...

Still there as of this morning. With the river up 15 feet, it has moved a little over and there is actually a small spot you could run through, if you have the power to run the current.

I took a look at the Carver Bridge today and the far left opening in the pilings is open.
There is a little wood hanging on the pilings but I think even when the water recedes a little more it should stay passable.
Good new for me! smile.gif

I stopped by there today too. The far side looks good to go. There is still lots of wood behind that bridge. I can't believe they let it sit there like that ...oh well, good cover I guess.
