Bridges Bandon
Coquille River Bridge

Constructed in 1922, the Coquille River Bridge was designed by famous bridge engineer Conde McCullough and built by local contractor A.B. Gidley. This 255-foot steel through truss swing span bridge is one of only six swing spans remaining on the Oregon's highway system. The swing-span was obsoleted by the quicker and more efficient lift- and bascule-style designs.

This bridge is especially noteworthy due its so-called "bobtail" design with the swing span pivoting on an off-center axis. This design allowed for maximum lateral waterway clearance.

Once a busy navigational route, today this bridge is rarely opened, unlike its distant neighbor located in Reedsport on the Umpqua River. Built over the tidal-influenced estuary of the Coquille River, a nearby marsh was later designated as well as Bullard’s Beach State Park.

Just north of the bridge, is the entrance to Bullard's Beach State Park where travelers may view the 100-year-old Coquille River Lighthouse.
