Notes
Survey number HAER OR-97
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-20).
Building/structure dates: 1927 initial construction
Significance: Depoe Bay Bridge was designed in 1926 by State Bridge Engineer, Conde B. McCullough. It was the first of thirteen reinforced deck and through arches that were built on the Oregon Coast Highway. The Depoe Bay Bridge is an important example of McCullough's engineering and artistic treatment of bridge design. This structure is a single-span reinforced concrete deck arch that is 312' long. Because of increased tourism in the community heavy pedestrian usage on the bridge dictated that the structure be widened with sidewalks added on both sides of the bridge. The 1940 bridge addition duplicates the design and detailing of the 1927 structure. A unique pedestrian walk passes under the bridge on the north bank, and allows access to Depoe Bay State Park. The bridge blends beautifully with the landscape found on this rocky section of the Oregon Coast Highway.
