A coastal icon

The iconic Yaquina Bay Bridge is one of the most photographed landmarks along the central Oregon coast. First opened to traffic on Sept. 6, 1936, this is one of 11 major bridges along the Oregon Coast Highway designed by Conde McCullough, eliminating the need for ferry crossings, which had been, prior to that, the only way to navigate up and down the coast.
