Description 

The Winter Street Bridge crossing Shelton Ditch 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.

The Winter Street Bridge suffered from significant stream scour which resulted in the bridge being replaced with a near replica in 2015. The replacement bridge opened to traffic in early 2016.
