Arched entry to Mount Rainier National Park near completion
MOUNT RAINIER, Wash. — Crews are finishing work on an arched entry to Mount Rainier National Park on Highway 410 to replace an equestrian overpass that was built in 1936 by the Civilian Conservation Corps.
The park says the old structure was unsafe. The new one will serve hikers and horse riders on the Pacific Crest Trail at the eastern entrance to the park at an elevation of more than 5,400 feet.
The News Tribune reports a crane was used Monday to place two structural supports — 70-foot logs, 3 feet in diameter.
