Siuslaw River Bridge

The Siuslaw River Bridge was one of five major bridges built in 1936, and like the others, replaced ferry service across the river. The 140-foot, double-leaf bascule drawspan is noted for its many decorative touches. The river, which is navigable about 14 miles inland to Mapleton, is popular with both sport fishermen and crabbers.
