Description 

The Union Bridge Company of Portland was awarded Contract No. 187 for the construction of a bridge over Cow Creek on July 8, 1919. This structure consists of six wood pony truss spans of 70 feet each on concrete piers. No housing is provided for this type of truss as a liberal use of creosote and paint is depended upon to protect the wood from action of the elements. - Biennial Report of the Oregon State Highway Commission
