(Gladstone, OR) -- A railroad bridge over the Clackamas River between Gladstone and Oregon City is now gone. Officials say the old trolley bridge became unstable after recent storms caused furious waves in the river to crash into bridge pilings. Workers pulled the bridge down and the structure crashed into the river around 12:35 yesterday afternoon. The century-old bridge was located about a mile upstream from the Willamette River.
