As part of celebrating 100 years of the Department of Transportation, ODOT just released a 7 minute video on the bridges of Conde McCullough.
You will recognize his bridges on the Oregon coast.
|Yaquina Bay Bridge, 1936|
|McCullough Checked Plans|
|Lanterns on Church Street Bridge|
Interestingly, the video directly discusses the role of at least one bridge in the attempt to spur development. The bridge over the Rogue River was constructed in part to attract Californians to Oregon.
