After six years, construction of the new Highway 35 Bridge over the White Salmon River on Mt. Hood is complete. It was destroyed during a “Pineapple Express” event in 2006. The new bridge is longer and higher than the old bridge, but Don Hamilton, with O-DOT says there are no guarantees. Highway 35 has been washed out 20 times since 1907. It happened twice in 1926 and 1959. The washout in 2006 was the most severe.
