McCullough Bridge - Hwy 101 - North Bend, Oregon (suz)

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Built in 1936, the Conde B. McCullough Memorial Bridge, spanning the north bend of the deep water channel of Coos Bay, in North Bend, Oregon.

I love this beautiful and historic bridge - even and ever more each time I see it. I've recorded a few hundred views already and feel I have only just started.

There are some stunning black and white images in the above link, taken by fine photographers who obviously saw the extraordinary beauty of this structure.

Wow! This is an interesting bridge. A section of cantilever construction and a section of arch construction. I'm guessing there is more cantilever construction toward the other bank. I can see the endless opportunities here.

I just saw another picture on your web site. How wrong I was. The cantilever section is in the middle and the arches are on each side. I should have been able to tell from the elevation. This is a wonderful and beautiful bridge.


P.S. I love your smiley.

Hello, Guy - completed in 1936, Art Deco designs in/on most of Mr. McCullough's bridges. He engineered all the bridges of Oregon's Highway 101, opening up to travelers a large part of the Great Northwest, and most are still in use today. This beauty is his memorial bridge - we are fortunate to have it so close to home. I am pleased you like it too. Thanks for your visit and I am happy that you like my smiley (O:
