Oregon's Art Deco Bridges

The minute we saw the first bridge on US 101 heading up the Oregon Coast we knew we were in for an interesting drive. It was spectacular and as we went along we saw several more. Unfortunately I had to take all pictures from the window of the Adventure Bus as there were no suitable (for us) pull outs to stop at. Until we came to the Cooks Chasm Bridge. Fortunately there was an information plaque there.
Below is a close-up of the description
And my photo of today's rebuilt bridge:
Several of these bridges were built during the depression years as part of FRD's New Deal to put people back to work. I am going to add pictures of several that we crossed so you can see the variety of design.

This bridge was being restored
