AboutMcCullough Bridge was opened in 1936 and the mile-long structure provides a vital transportation link between the city of North Bend and northern Coos County.
Over the last decade, the bridge has seen two major rehabilitation projects. This includes replacing the rail, resurfacing the deck, and applying a cathodic protection treatment to the concrete sections of the bridge to prevent corrosion. However, the bridge needs more work.
The paint on the steel truss section of McCullough Bridge is deteriorating and rust is visible in numerous areas. This project will remove the rust, replace rivets, repair damaged steel, and paint the steel truss.
U.S. 101 (Oregon Coast Highway) milepost 233-234. Project is located at the north end of North Bend.
