Description 

The Pringle Creek Bridge on Winter Street is one of many 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.

The Pringle Creek Bridge is a single span concrete girder bridge that features brush hammered finishing on the exterior girders and the standard baluster railing. The rail style was utilized on all of the bridges built in Salem during this time.
