Fidalgo Trestle Path goes up in flames (2009)

Friday, October 15, 2021

Nearly 300 feet of historic railroad trestle burned over Fidalgo Bay on October 15th, 2009. The landmark had bridged Anacortes with March Point since 1889, and had been renovated and added to the Tommy Thompson Trail only three years earlier. The community wasn't going to let the bridge go. Through a large scale campaign of donation and volunteerism, the bridge was rebuilt by May of the next year.
