OREGON CITY, Ore. (AP) - High water on the Clackamas River may have cause an unused century-old trolley bridge between Gladstone and Oregon City to become unstable.

A piling has shifted about 4 feet causing a visible tilt.

It was noticed Thursday, and Union Pacific is monitoring the bridge while engineers evaluate the problem. Meanwhile officials recommend boaters avoid passing under the bridge.

The Oregonian reports (https://is.gd/hxgyjd ) streetcars haven’t used the bridge since the 1950s. It was briefly used for freight and had been considered for a pedestrian walkway while others have urged Union Pacific to remove it.
