Significance: The Ten Mile Creek Bridge is significant as one of the earliest example of reinforced concrete tied-arch bridge construction in the Pacific Northwest region. The bridge is also significant for its association with the development and completion of the Oregon Coast Highway (US 101) in the 1930s. The Oregon Coast Highway was a major public works effort to establish an uninterrupted route from California to Washington...The bridge is also significant as the work of a master, Oregon State Bridge Engineer Conde B. McCullough. McCullough served as State Bridge Engineer, and later as the Assistant State Highway Engineer, from 1919 until his death in 1945. McCullough is significant for his use of innovative bridge technology and for his visually appealing designs. He attained international recognition for the structures he designed along the Oregon Coast Highway in the 1930s.
