Constructed in 1961, the Thomas Creek Bridge has the highest bridge in Oregon at 345 feet. It is located at milepost 374.78 near Cape Ferrelo, between Gold Beach and Brookings.
Designed by Ivan D. Merchant, this 956 feet structure consists of three steel deck Warren trusses that are supported by steel-frame towers on concrete piers.
To appreciate the structure~ez_rsquo~s magnitude, pull into the parking area at the bridge~ez_rsquo~s south end. Follow a short trail west for the best look at the gigantic geometric steel legs supporting the bridge.
