Marshall Bridge

Marshall Bridge
Bridge No. 2404
9613 . Cheney-Spokane Road, Marshall WA 99224 See Map
W. L. Malony

Completed in 1949, the Marshall Creek Bridge facilitated the crossing of the mainline rail yard and switching center of the Spokane, Portland and Seattle Railroad (SP&S), Union Pacific Railroad (UP), and Northern Pacific Railroad (NP) at the community of Marshall, Washington. The bridge spanned two tracks of the SP&S, two through tracks and two diverging tracks of the NP, space for two future through tracks, as well as provided a crossing of Marshall Creek. Before construction of the Marshall Creek Bridge, vehicular track crossing involved a circuitous route leading to an inadequate timber bridge over the creek. Although constructed on a Spokane County highway, the Marshall Creek Bridge was a Washington State Department of Highways Project.
