The Old Trolley Bridge over the Clackamas River is history. Engineers from Union Pacific demolished the bridge this morning. Last week the railroad company noticed the bridge had moved 4 feet in just a few hours. They feared it would collapse. Today teams attached cables to the bridge and toppled it into the water. A crowd gathered to watch it fall. The bridge is an abandoned remnant of a trolley line that once connected Oregon City to Portland.
