I nearly forgot to tell you about the bridges. The Oregon coast has some great bridges. With their art deco style and soaring arches, they seem to match each other, and I think that’s why people always notice them when they travel through.
In this post I only offer you a glimpse of these bridges because I was busy taking photos of other things. Travelers are often inspired to collect the Oregon bridges in photos and make truly remarkable collections. I encourage you to look up someone else’s collection if you’re interested in seeing more.
Nearly all of the bridges along this stretch of Highway 101 were designed by Conde McCullough. McCullough spent his entire career building bridges in Oregon, and we are grateful. How often do you hear about someone who is a famous bridge-builder? Well that’s what kind of an impact this guy had around here.
And that’s all. I just wanted to show you one more very cool thing about my state. The following 6-minute video is produced by the Oregon Department of Transportation, and provides some more history and some aerial photos of McCullough’s Oregon bridges.

From you we get the picture
Thank you, Derrick. They really are outstanding bridges. I wish I could have taken some more photos of more bridges, but I’m glad you get the gist.
Mighty scenic. I have a favourite photo. It’s the one when you say that you can’t get enough of the art deco towers. I can see why!
They are so wonderful. It’s hard to explain. When you drive north or south along the highway, and you cross these amazing and beautiful bridges, one after another, the style just gets to you. When I mention the bridges to people around here, everyone knows right away which bridges I mean. It’s very cool.
