Documentation compiled after 1968.
Survey number HAER OR-36-E
Building/structure dates: 1914 initial construction
National Register Number: 83004168
Part of building/structure is in Bridal Veil, Multnomah County, OR.
Significance: Site constraints forced Multnomah County and the Oregon State Highway Commission to select a skewed reinforced-concrete deck girder span for this location. The span's angled bents and its tall and thick parapet walls, which function as elastic beams, make it an atypical structure on the Historic Columbia River Highway.
