A jogger runs across Bridge 13 on the MKT Trail on Tuesday. Bridges 12 and 13 will be closed beginning Jan. 4, 2010, to facilitate their replacement. The 100-year-old bridges' timber supports have deteriorated with time, and the Columbia Parks and Recreation Department decided to replace them over the winter months when it would cause the least amount of inconvenience.
