Significance: The Albany Bridge made possible the completion of the Albany-Corvallis Highway. It is one of only a few multiple-span steel truss bridges in Oregon. It is also one of the few major steel truss bridges built in Oregon during the tenure of State Bridge Engineer Conde B. McCullough, who was noted for his beautiful concrete bridges. McCullough tried whenever possible to give a pleasing and even ornate appearance to the bridges he designed. Even when designing this steel bridge, he could not resist including decorative concrete pylons at the portals and concrete railing.
