It is understood the fund allot- ted for the new bridge also in- cludes sufficient to include new approaches. A new bridge site, witil new approach from the north, it is thought, will permit a new connection with the part of the highway which traverses the Mt. Baker highway through Deming, Rnd a new approach from Van Zandt, materially straightening some bad curves. The new bridge at N. Fork Nookachamps creek will replace the present curving structure which crosses the creek and Northern Pacific Railway at a point two miles south of Clear Lake. Pierson, Stillaguamish Pioneem.
