Shady Creek Bridge

Though the name of the bridge is Shady Creek Bridge, the bridge does not cross Shady Creek. The actual "Shady Creek" is located at the east portal of Tunnel #6, just below Cruzatte. Below the bridge are a Northern Pacific and a Union Pacific boxcar that went over the side during the 1964 flood.

This section is made up of two categories. The first consisting of general photos of the bridge, and the ICC Valuation report for the bridge. Clicking the thumbnails will open the photo in a new window.
