The Eight-Track double-track bascule spans replaced the fixed double-track through-truss spans one at a time. On March 2, 1910, looking southwest, the replacement of span number 2 is in progress. Spans 1, 3, and 4 have already been replaced. A derrick mounted on span number 1 is placing the rolling panels and other structural members for the second span. (MWRD photo 4336)
