Blast from the Past / 1967: The finishing touches on a remodel

A highway construction crew works on the Lenore Bridge across the Clearwater River as it was reopened to one-way traffic in this photo published in the July 20, 1967, Lewiston Tribune. Several loaded grain trucks moved across it during the day July 19, according to the photo caption, and farmers commented they were pleased with the reopening as it coincided with the beginning of harvest in the area. The Nez Perce County bridge had been closed since June 13 for a remodeling required because of an adjacent Idaho State Highway Department project to widen and straighten U.S. Highway 12.
