Description 

The Summer Street Bridge crossing Mill Creek north of downtown Salem is 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 Summer Street Bridge reused the substructure piers and abutments from a previous bridge at the site which modifies the appearance of the structure when compared to the other City of Salem bridges built during the era.
