Old Trolley Bridge Demolished

Written by FM News 101 KXL on March 9, 2014

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.
