Western Oregon has a pretty mild climate with mild summers and wet winters. The freeze-thaw cycles are pretty limited unlike in other parts of the country. In addition we do not use much salt in deicing the roads which really helps slows the deterioration of bridges.

I can almost guarantee that this bridge has seen very minimal maintenance since it was bypassed and turned over to the county in the 1960ís when Interstate 5 was constructed.

Interesting, they must have mild weather there. The bridge looks in pretty good shape for 1921.
