A crew from Ness Cranes of Seattle hoists the last of four 148-foot reinforced concrete beams into place Thursday for what will become the new Old Olympic Highway bridge spanning McDonald Creek west of Sequim. The new bridge replaces a narrower 1957-vintage span considered too narrow and inadequate for modern traffic. Completion of the project, coordinated by Tacoma-based Orion Marine Contractors Inc., is expected in late winter. (Keith Thorpe/Peninsula Daily News)
