This is an unaltered and outstanding representative example of a 1930s standard riveted through truss bridge in Oregon. Many state highway departments across the country developed their own designs for riveted through truss bridges (most examples date from the 1920s to the early 1940s). Much like the unique designs of bridge builders in the late 1800s, each state came up with its own unique design of truss bridge in the 20th century. Oregon's design here is a rather attractive example, with its curved portal bracing and sway bracing, Oregon's signature standard concrete railings, and the graceful Parker truss configuration. This bridge appears to be unaltered and is a good representative example of Oregon's take on medium-span through truss bridge design in the 20th century.
This bridge is next to the rare Phoenix column railroad truss bridge.
