Description 

The Berry Creek Bridge and the twin Soap Creek Bridge on OR-99W between Monmouth and Corvallis are classic examples of pre-interstate era concrete bridges built by the Oregon State Highway Department. The bridges have little aesthetic treatment other than a late example of a decorative railing.

These bridges like others along this stretch of Highway 99 had to grow with the increasing traffic and larger vehicles of the 1930's and 40'. The original bridge with it's 20-foot wide roadway was widened to 38-feet in the 1943.
