Engineer .Modjcski, Who Designed
Crooked River Span, Say It May He
Ready In 60 Day Construction
It will require no more than 10
weeks to complete the dyoked
River bridge of the Oregon Trunk
Railway, according to Ralph Mod
jeski, the famous Chicago engineer.
Mr. Modjcski designed the Crook
ed River bridge. Construction
work is proceeding -on the cantilever
method. A bracket of steel has
been started from each bank of the
river without any support from be
neath. The two brackets finally
will meet in the center and form
the completed bridge. It will be
supported in a manner similar to
the way a keystone supports an
arch of masonry.
Mr. Modjcski told President Cray,
of the Oregon Trunk, that it is
possible to finish the bridge in eightl
weeks, but that allowing for reason
able delays it should be finished in
As soon as the structure is com
pleted the work of laying the rails
to Redmond and Bend will start.
As the grading has been done this
task will require no more than a
month or six weeks, so that Bend
will have a railroad well within the
present year. Portland Oregonian.
