Notes
Survey number HAER OR-30
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-14).
Building/structure dates: 1921 initial construction
Significance: This single-span reinforced-concrete deck arch bridge was designed by Conde B. McCullough and completed in 1921. The main arch spans 75', while the total length of the bridge is 101'. This bridge is similar in design and detailing to the Sheppard's Dell Bridge, also on the Columbia River Highway. Both of these bridges are well suited to the landscape and environment in which they are placed, which was a characteristic feature of all structures built on this highway. This bridge is the fourth deck arch designed by McCullough for the State of Oregon and is significant as an early example of his work in reinforced concrete.
