Another long research project finally finished: Interstate 205.

Now I can ignore Oregon for a bit while I finish up Washington.  :D

The "Green Lady" of Oregon Coast bridges is the graceful Yaquina Bay Bridge, a 3,223 foot long arch bridge that US 101 uses to cross the Yaquina Bay in Newport, Oregon.

Continuing an occasional series of the US 101 corridor in Oregon and Washington State, we land on the beautiful Siuslaw River Bridge. Spanning 1,568 feet across the Siuslaw River in Florence, Oregon, the Siuslaw River Bridge carries US 101 and was built in 1936.

Where the river meets the sea, the Astoria-Megler Bridge is a 4.1 mile long cantilever truss bridge crossing the Columbia River on US 101 between Astoria, Oregon and Megler, Washington. Opened in 1966 and later featured in a scene in the movie Short Circuit, the bridge cost $24 million to build.

Built in 1920, the 220 foot long Grave Creek Covered Bridge is located on what was US 99 in Sunny Valley, Oregon. Featuring a main span of 105 feet in length, this Howe through truss designed covered bridge is the only covered bridge that is visible from I-5.
