Little Campbell River - Big Job
We can feel a lot safer now as BNSF has replaced the old rail bridge over the Little Campbell River near the Semiahmoo Band land.
For a couple of years now residents in White Rock have been concerned about the safety of the bridge after seeing this video of the decaying structure.
The old section of the trestle over the Little Campbell River was lifted out in one piece, the new piece was then dropped in just like a life size leggo set A Semiahmoo member looks on from the band's land as BNSF work crews dismantle the old trestle.
Thank You BNSF we will all sleep better at night knowing the bridge has now been replaced.

Taking advantage of a pause in the student's litany, the senior said,
"You're right sonny . We didn't have those things when we were young... so we invented them!"
