Rocky Creek Bridge, also known as Ben Jones Bridge, south of Depoe Bay in Lincoln County, Oregon. Built in 1927, the bridge originally carried U.S. Route 101 (the Oregon Coast Highway) over the creek. After a stretch of the highway was relocated to make it straighter, the abandoned piece of the old highway became a bypass west of the new highway. Designed by Conde McCullough, the arch bridge is 360 feet long.

The bridge is named after Ben Jones, who is known as the father of the Roosevelt Military Coast Highway (US 101). Jones was a lawyer who helped establish Lincoln County in 1893, and who served as mayor of the Oregon cities of Toledo and Newport. In the early twentieth century much of the Oregon coast was inaccessible, and Jones, a state representative drafted legislation that supported the building of US 101. He was inspired by his earlier work in the area as a mail man, having to travel along primitive roads, to work towards getting a full highway built along the Oregon coast shoreline.

The bridge was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2005.

Drift Creek Covered Bridge in Otis, OR. It was built in 1914 but over the years fell into disrepair and was taken down in 1997. The major pieces were saved, however, and it was reconstructed at its present location spanning Bear Creek in 2001.

This is the main bridge that connects north and south Glasgow across the River Clyde. When it was built several decades ago they never expected the volume of traffic that now uses it on a regular basis. During the week, especially at rush hour the traffic is bumper to bumper and moves so slowly. This picture was taken on a Sunday when it is to be found with very little traffic on it.
