Three million dollars for new
bridges will be required from
tha state highway department for
tne completion of the Oregon
Coast highway according to ten
tative figures prepared here this
week by C. B. McCullough. state
highway bridge engineer. To
date none of the five maior
bridges required to close exist
ing gaps on the road have been
authorised. When they will be
built depends entirely npon the
policy of the highway commission
towards elimination of existing
ferries on the coast highway and
the allotment of necessary funds
for bridge building.
.anticipating tne early .con
struction of some of the bridges.
McCullough's department has al
ready made preliminary sound
ings for the Florence and New
port oriages wnue plans lor a
bridge at Waldport are under
way in the bridge division of
the highway department here,
The bridges at Waldport and
florence offer less difficulties in
the way of construction, In ob
taining of rights from the feder
al government and in financing.
McCullough thinks the Waldport
bridge could now be constructed
tor tsev.uuo wnue three years
ago it would have cost at least
$500,000. While this bridge will
need to be much longer than the
one at Florence It is through
much shallower water. It also
holds up well as a justified fi
nancial project since the state is
now paying $20,000 a year for
ferry service at Waldport and
mis cnarge would amply cover
the Interest charges on the Wald
port construction.
Bridge at Florence
To be Less Costly
McCullough estimates the cost
of a bridge at Florence at $400,-
000 while one at Newport will
cost from $650,000 to $700,000,
in his opinion. The latter bridge
must be so constructed that the
entrance to Taquina bay for
boats will not be obstructed
Both this bridge and the one at
Florence would need to have
draw spans which will increase
their cost over the bridge at
McCullough estimates the
bridge which may eventually be
constructed at Reedsport will
cost $600,000. This will be a
long structure, probably running
from the Gardiner side of the
Rogue river to an island and
from there into Reedsport.
The most expensive bridge to
be built in closing the gaps on
the Coast highway will be the
one across Coos Bay. There has
been some talk that the present
highway would be re-routed so
traffic would go - over the Inlet
bridge built by Coos county and
then follow a... new road built
along the ncuih side of Coos
Bay. In this way Marshfield and
North Bend would both be left
off the main highway route. Op
position to such a development
is certain to come from both of
these Coos Bay cities. The bridge
department is not certain but
that a new bridge across Coos
Bay could be built for less money
than would be required to con
struct the expensive new road
along the north side of Coos Bay.
Large outlays from the federal
government for Toad construe
tion in the states make the com
ing year an opportune one for
bridge construction. Estimates
on government aid for road
building run as high as $7,000,-
000 for Oregon in the next 12
months. Fifty per cent of the
direct outlay for work on bridges
goes tor labor and preparation
of the materials for, the bridge
including steel, concrete, wood
for forms, gravel and other ma'
