Category 5: Historic Preservation Honorable Mention, image of worker on project Rocky Creek (Ben Jones) Bridge, Otter Crest Vicinity, Oregon

Rocky Creek (Ben Jones) Bridge,
Otter Crest Vicinity, Oregon

Designer:
Oregon Department of Transportation, Salem, OR

Contractor:
F.E. Ward Construction, Inc., Vancouver, WA

The historic bridge carries traffic along the scenic Oregon coast and is the main link for the community of Mioco to the rest of the coast. The bridge was saved from severe saltwater corrosion by restoration instead of a replacement, thus preserving its historic appearance. The new bridge deck increased load capacity and provided a safe, accessible route to drivers.
