Bridge Documentation

View Archived National Bridge Inventory Report - Has Additional Details and Evaluation

ODOT describes this bridge has having little ornamentation. That may be true by Oregon standards. Oregon has an amazing collection of concrete arch bridges, and many like this one were designed under noted engineer Conde McCullough who put a lot of emphasis on aesthetics in bridge design. That said, this remains a beautiful bridge and if it were located in a different state would be considered ornate. The bridge is also noted for its lack of alteration. It retains original railings.

Information and Findings From Oregon's Historic Bridge Inventory

One 100-ft reinforced concrete open-spandrel rib-type deck arch with two 22-ft reinforced concrete deck girder approaches on each side

Designer

Oregon State Highway Department under C.B. McCullough

Builders

Chas O. Young

Significance

This bridge is a good example of a standard deck arch designed under McCullough during the early 1930s. The state designed it for the county, using little ornamentation in order to save money. The decorative elements are limited to Art Deco inspired brackets for the railing, vertical incised details on the spandrel columns and a standard Type D railing.
