Bridges Reedsport
Umpqua River Bridge

The Umpqua River Bridge, located in Reedsport, was designed by famous Oregon Coast bridge engineer Conde McCullough. Opening in 1936, it was one of five major structures built during Oregon's Coast Bridge project. Other bridges built along Highway 101 that year include the Yaquina Bay Bridge in Newport, the Siuslaw River Bridge in Florence, and the Coos Bay Bridge in North Bend.

The steel through truss central span is 430 feet and is the largest swing-span structure in Oregon and the only one still being used in this state. On occasion, travelers witness the wonder of this bridge's swing-span structure in motion.

The structure also contains two, 154-foot reinforced concreted through tied arch spans at either end of the main span. Noted features also include decorative railings, bracketing, and approach pylons.

Beautiful views of the Umpqua River can be seen from this structure. Landscape photographs may be taken from the deck and beneath the bridge located at milepost 211.11.
