This is one of the most beautiful and well-known bridges along

Coos Bay coast.. The McCullough Bridge was originally another name, but

when the creator died in 1946 the bridge was renamed in

his honor. The bridge was the work of

F.E.M.A. – Federal Emergency Administration of Public Works

Project 932. It was built Under Co-Operative Agreement By Oregon

State Highway Commission, Northwest Roads Company and Virginia

Bridge and Iron Company Contractors. A plaque on the Southeast

side of the bridge has the following words "Dedicated to the

memory of Conde Balcom McCullough whose genius and inspiration

are manifest in the design of this bridge and many other Oregon Bridges.
