Honorable Mention


Category 3A: Major Highway Structures Over $10 Million Honorable Mention Crooked River Gorge Bridge - US Highway 97, Terrbonne, Oregon

Crooked River Gorge Bridge -
US Highway 97,
Terrbonne, Oregon

Designer:
David Goodyear Engineering Services, Olympia, WA

Contractor:
Kiewit Pacific, Vancouver, WA

After 70 years, the old bridge, although was structurally sound, was unable to accommodate present-day needs. The new bridge was constructed with style and visual harmony in mind, using arches and other elements from older bridges, including the Oregon Trunk Railway Bridge. The new bridge continues Oregon's longstanding tradition of building bridges that complement the surrounding landscape.
