McKee Covered Bridge

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 14 June 2009 in Architecture and Portfolio.

Built in 1917, this 122 foot (37.2 meter) bridge of the Howe truss type spans the Applegate River in Jackson County, Oregon, USA. It originally served mining and logging traffic but in 1956 was declared unsafe for vehicular traffic. It has been used by pedestrians since.

Part of the Covered Bridges of Oregon series.

Lovely shot and thanks for the information. Colorado has none of these, at least I know of none. Now that I'm out here in Ohio there are some around. As most are getting older they are being taken out of use. I've enjoyed your series on these bridges. Maybe a good project for a book.

I've heard of Jackson county, but didn't know that it was in Oregon. Superb shot Steve, I like the end view.
