Very interesting architecture

The long span and attractive architecture makes for a very interesting photo opportunity. We enjoyed the view in traveling over this bridge but even more at a distance.

This is a 2 lane very scenic bridge that takes Hwy 101 over the Bay by North Bend that was built in the 30's. It is easy to exceed the speed limit. Watch for bicyclists on the side of the lanes. Your passengers will have a great view of the bay.

This bridge was one of the longer ones we crossed on our Oregon coast trip. Big and solid so i felt safe and secure going across. This is where Hwy 101 crosses Coos Bay.

The historic McCullough Bridge bears the name of the prolific Oregon Coast bridge designer, Conde McCullough. One of over 20 of his coastal bridges, this one spans the North Bend of Coos Bay, hence the name of the two towns nearby. The almost mile-long bridge is beautiful, majestic, and the link between town and dunes.

One of the cooler bridges in the Pacific Northwest. You can drive (or walk) across, but it's also cool to head over to the dunes (heading north, it's a left turn just after the bridge ends) and see the bridge from a different angle. (The dunes are privately owned, but they're cool to check out while you're near the bridge).

The bridge is a bit spooky to travel across the first time. The old bridge is very high above the bay and a bit narrow. It's Hard to appreciate the view if your driving but is a pretty great experience as you enter North Bend.

You have to drive over it to get to North Bend/Coos Bay, built in 1939 to replace a ferry system, but high enough to allow big ship to come into port. Named after the state engineer who designed the bridges up and down the coast.

We crossed the Coos Bay Bridge as we left the city and headed north along the Oregon Coast. It's iron construction added a lot of character to the riverfront and offered a pleasant view of the surrounding area.

You're likely going to just come upon this bridge as you travel through Coos Bay, but that doesn't mean this bridge is any less iconic. If you're heading south like we were, be prepped with camera/phone in hand as you approach the town. There are a couple of good photo opps as you approach. Not alot of places to pull... More

This bridge and several others that span the rivers that enter the sea along the Oregon Coast are beautiful, both at a distance and as you drive across. It is worth your time to learn a bit of their history.
