Description 

The Liberty Street Bridge crossing Pringle Creek was one of twelve bridges designed by Salem City Bridge Engineer Ray A. Furrow.

During the late 1920ís and early 1930ís the City of Salem undertook a major bridge building project to span the main streams within the city. As a result there are numerous examples of reinforced concrete girder structures with fine architectural detailing throughout the city crossing the various streams. Though some of the structures have been replaced many still remain scattered in and around the downtown core of Salem.
