Notes
Survey number HAER OR-130
Building/structure dates: 1935 initial construction
Significance: The Dry Creek (Harris Road) Bridge #59C35, a riveted steel, pony through truss of the Warren truss configuration is significant for its historic association with rural Umatilla County, an important agricultural area in Oregon, and for its distinctive characteristics of a type and method of construction, now obsolete. The single-span structure is one of thirty-one steel pony truss bridges in the state, and one of only four remaining in Umatilla County. Umatilla County was settled as, and continues to be, a sparsely populated agricultural community, connected to the rest of the state by a network of farm-to-market roads. The Dry Creek Bridge is one of the few remaining historic structures associated with this isolated area of Umatilla County.
