Winnifred Street Bridge

A concrete box girder bridge built in 1941 by S.R. Gray. The Winnifred Street Bridge crosses a deep chasm through which the Burlington Northern Railroad passes and is believed to be the third structure to span that difficult crossing. The structure is the second oldest box girder bridge built in Washington State. (The Purdy Bridge is the oldest box girder bridge in the state.) The W. H. Witt Company designed both the Purdy Bridge and the Winnifred Street Bridge. The present structure is the only bridge in Ruston. It was a PWA project and the only federally funded, New Deal-sponsored structure in town.
