Notes
Survey number HAER OR-138
Building/structure dates: 1935 initial construction
Significance: The Applegate River Bridge #01985 is significant as an intact example of a pre-WWII steel through truss. It is significant as an embodiment of an obsolete type and method of construction, a Parker through truss with riveted gusset plates, arched portals, laced members, barbell concrete piers, and cantilevered sidewalks. The Parker truss form, a Pratt truss with a polygonal top chord, is the predominant truss type for the remaining through truss bridges in Oregon. ...The Applegate River Bridge is also significant for its association with the National Industrial Recovery Act of 1933, one of the New Deal Era programs instigated by Franklin D. Roosevelt to assist economic recovery during the Great Depression...
