This is a really striking and beautiful bridge. It is a mile long cantilever span with symmetrical multi arch approaches on both ends. Best viewed from the west side on Horsefall Beach Road. Being under it and looking at the exposed steel understructure has been compared to visiting a cathedral. It was opened in 1936 and was a WPA project. It is named after its designer Conde B. McCullough who also designed 10 other major bridges on Hwy 101 in Oregon. He used an ancient Egyptian motif for the shape of concrete structures on the approaches of all those bridges.

One of the most beautiful bridges I have seen. Up close and from a distance it is an awesome sight. If you get a chance, go to Ferry Road, and you can drive under the bridge from the south side. Looking north at the underside of the bridge is like an enormous cathedral !

We had the opportunity to see this beautiful bridge under the full moon with the reflection in the water. Really impressive architecture.

I never thought before a recent trip to the US I had much interest in bridges. But after our recent trip I see that they not only fulfil a very necessary function in getting people across water but many look different and some even have some visual charm. This bridge has some interest from a distance but also has some visual appeal as you drive over under its criss-crossed beams.
