Bridge to Nowhere

Fog draped over the Astoria-Megler Bridge in Astoria, Oregon.


Interestingly, this was once called the "Bridge to Nowhere."


When it was constructed in 1962, no one believed Washington and Oregon could ever recoup the $24 million spent to construct it. Tolls, however, paid for the continuous truss bridge much sooner than anticipated. It is one of the most interesting bridges in the U.S. and a "must see" for anyone visiting Astoria, Oregon.
