Eggners Ferry Bridge Collapse

Monday, February 6, 2012

This morning the 8200-ton cargo ship Delta Mariner was moved downstream from Eggner's Ferry Bridge.  Workers cleared most of the wreckage from the ship, freeing it from the collapsed span of the bridge.

Below are photos courtesy of Keith Todd showing the wreckage on Saturday as well as the ship moving downstream today.

This stoic heron is looking at more than just his own reflection. He is looking at the fish that will become his lunch.
