The State Street Bridge is the 2nd crossing of Mill Creek as the street heads east away from downtown Salem. The bridge was designed by the Oregon State Highway Department. The structure features many of the standard architectural treatments employed by the department during the early 20th century including baluster rails and brush-hammered paneling in the girders.
The original bridge built in 1929 by contractor A.H. Kingsbury was widened to the north in 1996, with a new version of a baluster rail that does not match the original that still remains on the south side of the bridge.
