Simpson Avenue Bridge; film clips from TAC Festival 2013

 

(1) In 1928, the coastal city of Hoquiam in Washington state was a boom town supplying timber for the rapidly growing American West.  The Simpson Avenue Bridge opened that year, but its design became problematic as it entered the Twenty-First Century.  Transportation engineers found a smart way to preserve the bridge and keep it functioning for the people of today.  (2) Lisa Westwood concludes our preview series for The Archaeology Channel International Film and Video Festival (7-11 May 2013, Eugene, Oregon) with seven short clips.
