The Bridges of King County Through the Lens of T. P. Blum: 1931 - 1934

Trestle

The trestle bridge has an open, cross -braced, rigid framework that is used to support the spans of the elevated structure. Each supporting frame is referred to as a bent. Many timber trestles were built in the 19th and early 20th C. for the railroad and are still in use today.
