Board of Viewers finds Dif
ficult Task of Making
The board of viewers are looking
over the details of the plans for a new
Dnage across the river at this place
today and it is likely that it will be
several days before they make a final
decision in the matter. Today each en
giner who submitted plans is given a
short time to fully explain his draw
ings and the particularly good points of
his design. The final estimates of the
cost of the bridge has not yet been
compiled by the viewers and the state
highway engineers and before the
award is made all of the estimates will
be figured up on the same basis.
In all 13 full sets of plans were
considered by tho viewer and this
board stated today that the report. that
only five plans would be finally con
sidered is wholly untrue and made out
Of whole cloth. None of the plans will
be thrown out as intimated in this
morning's paper but. only 13 sets of
plans were found to comply with all of
the requirements of the highway de
partment. Thus one of the 1.3 plnns will
finally be selected but all 13 will bo
The viowers state that the number of
plans shown indicates that fw.j of the
best engineers in the northwest are in
terested in the Salem bridge and that
a first class structure is to be erected
and also that the requirements of this
bridge have been given earful consider
ation by the engineers and gome excel
lent designs in both concrete and steel
have been submitted.
