Travel Tips for Depoe Bay

YAQUINA BAY BRIDGE

by mtncorg

Some of the most graceful bridges in the US can be found along the length of US 101. Conde McCullough was the State Bridge Engineer for most of them during his reign of 1919-1935. Here, the Yaquina Bay Bridge - completed in 1936 - was one of the five major bridges of the Oregon's Coast Bridges project. Grace and beauty combine here in one of the Coast's most dramatic designs. Steel arches combine with concrete arches to give the impression - to repeat a common metaphor - of a stone skipping across the water. Built as one of the five major bridges that made up the Oregon's Coast Bridges project of 1936, the bridge is 3223 feet long, featuring a 600-foot steel through arch flanked by two 350 foot steel deck arches. On the south side, there are five reinforced concrete deck arch spans and another fifteen concrete deck girder approach spans. The fluted entrance pylons add to the drama of the design.

On the north side of the bridge is the Yaquina Bay Lighthouse - the site of a State Park. This lighthouse is not to be confused with the Lighthouse at Yaquina Head - several miles to the north. There are tours of the lighthouse available and grand views out over the bridge and the entrance to Yaquina Bay.

Actually this tip would be better placed in 'Newport', whcih is the main town in this area of the Coast, but until I make a few more tips for Newport - which means a few beers at the Rogue Brewpub ;-] - this will stay here in the Depoe Bay tips, which is only about 20 minutes away.

Our trip to Depoe Bay was for our 18th wedding anniversary. We stayed in Lincoln City and drove to Depoe Bay daily to eat, take in the local shops and visit places to stay for our next visit.

We will be back!
