6th St. Overpass – Centralia WA

Description

“The overpass on 6th Street was a project funded by the state and Works Progress Administration (WPA). The overpass allowed cars and trucks to go over the railroad tracks. Centralia was an important logging and coal-mining town. The bridge improved the transportation of these products while also making the tracks safer for residents.”
