Long Description:
Marys River Bridge contains two bridge plaques noting its construction in 1932. The bridge was built under a co-operative agreement by the United State Bureau of Public Roads and the Oregon State Highway Commission. Lindstrom & Feigenson were the contractors. This truss bridge appears to still be in good condition and the the light posts located at both the north and south ends were functioning when I took photos in the early evening.

This bridge handles northbound traffic into Corvallis only. I would assume when first opened in 1932, this bridge handled both north and southbound traffic.
State: Oregon

Nearest City: Corvallis
