Interesting Factoid: McCullough Bridge was completed in 1936 and was one of Conde B. McCullough's designs; the bridge was renamed for Mr. McCullough posthumously in 1947. It was the longest structure on Oregon's highway system at the time built. In 1919 Conde Mc Cullough became Oregon's state bridge engineer; he believed that bridges should be build efficiently, economically and aesthetically.
