The logging bridge under construction across the Kootenai at Libby is now in use. Built by the Roy Bair Co., Spokane, for the J. Neils Lumber Co., it lacked over a week of completion as shown at right. Barge on river beneath bridge is equipped with mobile crane for handling heavy timbers. Structure is built on concrete piers of old logging train bridge. Libby Photo-Mart photo from the July 30, 1953, files of The Western News
