It does not, if I get time to scroll through some old photos, I might get a page made up.

Mike,

Thanks for clearing that up! I don't believe Bridgehunter has a page for the 1955 bridge?

The bridge in the ENR article is the former northbound bridge at this location that was built in 1955 and replaced in 2004. The southbound bridge was built in 1965 as a basic twin of the 1955 bridge with some key differences.

The 1965 bridge features pre-stressed girder approach spans and the truss is bolted at the field connections.

The 1955 bridge has cast in place concrete girder approaches and had an entirely riveted truss.

The 1955 bridge was replaced with a post-tensioned concrete box girder in 2004.

I found this advertisement in a 1955 issue of ENR. If this is the same bridge (it looks the same) and assuming I-5 used to be OR-99, then I think this bridge may date to ca. 1955 rather than 1965. https://archive.org/details/sim_enr_1956-05-31_156_22/page/1...
