Bridge to Nowhere

    Newer Older

    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.

      If this is that long,long bridge OMG I was petrified when I crossed it. I hate going over long distances of water and didn't even look out the window,but this photo is amazing. Even better than driving across !!

      I've just enjoyed 30 minutes going through the first 50 pages of your super stream. Lovely work - thanks for all the treats! This, like the others, is a beauty.

      Nice one of this bridge in the fog. My Uncle Jerry was one of the ODOT bridge inspectors - he was on the project from start to finish. Rick
