Bridges North Bend
McCullough Memorial Bridge

One of five structures built as part of the Oregon's Coast Bridge project, this Coos Bay bridge opened in 1936. Renamed posthumously after its designer in 1947, the McCullough Memorial Bridge spans 5,305 feet with a 1,709-foot through truss that has a main span of 793 feet and is flanked by 13 graceful, open-spandrel, rib-type, reinforced concrete deck arches. A cantilever with curved upper and lower chords was constructed to deal with the design difficulties with a steel truss and the arched spans.

It was famous Oregon bridge engineer Conde McCullough's largest structure and also the longest bridge on Oregon's highway system when it was constructed. Under the Federal Emergency Administration of Public Works Project 932, this bridge was constructed in cooperation with Oregon State Highway Commission, Northwest Roads Company, and Virginia Bridge and Iron Company Contractors.

Located at milepost 234.98 at the entrance to North Bend, this bridge's arch was built for tall ships entering the Port of Coos Bay with its 150-foot clearance. The cost of its construction was $2,143,400.

At the southeast side of the bridge is a bronze plaque honoring McCullough "whose genius and inspiration are manifest in the design of this bridge and many other Oregon Bridges. During his period of service as Bridge Engineer and Assistant State Highway Engineer 1919-1946." Travelers may access this beautiful span on foot by a curved, concrete stairway attached to the structure's southern side. A marvel of engineering design and decor, this bridge presents itself as an ideal subject for photography with its decorative portals and spiralling pylons. It is also the official symbol of the City of North Bend.
