The removable span bridge over the Walluski River was built in 1980. The bridge replaced an earlier 130-foot plate girder swing span bridge that was built in the same location around 1939.
The continuous movable spans functions in a way that they are slide on rollers to the north with the leading span sliding up on to the adjacent concrete approach span with the trailing span moving out of the way for marine traffic.

- The Walluski River Bridge features a removable span that can be removed by a crane for river traffic. The Walluski River Bridge is one of two bridges of this type in Oregon, the other being the Coquille River Bridge in Coquille.
The remaining eight spans of the Walluski River Bridge are pre-stressed/pre-cast concrete girders, that are typical of highway bridges built during this era.

Total length: 484.9 ft.
