Transportation

Northbound U.S. Route 95 was formerly routed westward through town as Main Street, first passing underneath the railroad tracks. Exiting town, old US-95 then resumed northward, following a descending tributary into Lawyers Creek Canyon. Two miles (3 km) north of Ferdinand, the old highway passed underneath an impressive timber railroad trestle (photos) of the Camas Prairie Railroad, then descended into the canyon to cross the creek into Lewis County. Before climbing a tributary up to Craigmont, the highway briefly paralleled a massive steel railroad trestle near its base, its track nearly 300 (91 m) feet above the creek. The highway was re-routed in the 1990s; the straighter US-95 now bypasses Ferdinand on its east side and stays east of the railroad and above the canyon, crossing it on a new elevated bridge (photo), directly above the old one.
