Young's Bay Bridge

Search Warrenton Oregon

Youngs Bay Bridge spans the bay West of Astoria to carry Oregon Coast Highway (US 101) traffic over the 4,200 foot, two-lane bridge with its 30-foot roadway. The bridge's lift span, shown in the foreground and partially open, consists of a steel lift span which has an 80-foot vertical clearance when lifted at mean low water, and a 45-foot clearance when in a closed position. It needs to be lifted only for larger ships. Width between channel piers is 130 feet.

The Old Young's Bay Bridge was constructed in 1921 and was Conde McCullough's first bridge on the Oregon Coast. It was replaced in 1964 by the present structure.
