Historic Million Dollar Bridge, east of Cordova AK
« on: May 19, 2018, 11:53:20 AM »

I've added many photos from my 2009 re-visit to the historic bridge, to its page on my still-incomplete Alaska Roads website:

http://www.alaskaroads.com/photos-Million-Dollar-Bridge.htm

This includes the two photos I took on my 1994 first visit before the damaged bridge (north span collapsed into the Copper River) was repaired in 2005. The rest of the photos are of the restored bridge, before a 2011 washout and other damage to bridges between the Million Dollar Bridge and Cordova indefinitely cut off auto access. It's still possible to visit the bridge, just not in your own or a rental car.

As with my recently-updated and expanded Dalton Highway photos pages, it took me awhile to add the 2009 photos to the Million Dollar Bridge page. Better late than never, huh?

I only made it to the first crossing(s) of the Copper River traveling east from Cordova in 2014.  (Not enough time to go further, unfortunately.)

Still, an impressive river.  Geologically fascinating.
