Looks like a pier for an earlier bridge is visible in the photo.

Another neat long Oregonia bridge lost I wish I could have gotten to see. I see it also had tubular piers which I still haven't found out whether they were all steel or poured concrete. I ran into somebody I knew from the area and asked about the bridge. He said he used to hang around the bridge and the river and it always scared his mom to drive across the bridge.
