Siuslaw River Bridge
Multiple iconic bridges spanning rivers and inlets along Oregon’s stretch of US 101 were designed by a single engineer, Conde McCullough. Reflective of the period in which they were designed, they are art deco masterpieces. Not built for today’s traffic volume or heavier/wider vehicles, they require constant care. One at the coastal town of Waldport has been completely replaced with a four lane bridge – not having, of course, anywhere near the same aesthetic appeal as McCullough’s designs.
This photo shows the Siuslaw River Bridge which is located in Florence, Oregon and which was completed in 1936. The photo was captured from Prichard State Park which The Oregonian has listed as the smallest State Park in Oregon (less than a half acre).
