New Bridge for Birch Bay, WA

The Bay Rim Condominiums on Birch Bay Drive have a footbridge across Terrell Creek, near its mouth, to link the condo owners to the oceanfront land that they own.

Then, the new bridge was hoisted up and put in place of the old bridge.

After some adjustments, the new bridge was fastened down.

And in early afternoon, the new bridge looked like it belongs:
