Church Street Bridge

Church Street Bridge, looking south
The Church Street Bridge has character. Built in 1929, it obviously was designed with the philosophy of Oregon's famed bridge engineer, Conde McCullough, who said that "bridges should be built efficiently, economically, and aesthetically." McCullough designed many of the beautiful bridges along Highway 101 on the Oregon coast (ODOT brochure in pdf). This bridge is above the Shelton Ditch featured yesterday. Standing between the lampposts looking west, you will see the confluence of Shelton Ditch and Pringle Creek.
