THE DRAYTON BRIDGE OVER THE RED RI VER

I was in Drayton ND on Sunday June 20th, and crossed the Red River on the bridge that runs from Robbin, Mn to Drayton. When I saw the construction for the new bridge I was reminded that it will not be long before the old bridge is history. With that in mind I stopped and took a few photos

I walked down to the bank of the river and took a few more shots. It is hard to believe how high the water rises to shut down this bridge.

From the Minnesota side a telephoto picture of the west side shows the pile driving for the new bridge is well underway. The new bridge will cross the river on the south side of the old bridge. It will be built much higher so that the flood waters, hopefully, will not prevent the use of the bridge.
