Red Wolf Crossing connects the ports of Wilma and Clarkston. It is located immediately downstream of the confluence of the Snake and Clearwater rivers. Its continuous plate girder and distinctive concrete piers make it a landmark in the Lewiston/Clarkston valley.

The bridge crosses over the slack water reservoir behind Lower Granite Dam, the highest and furthest inland navigable dam on the Columbia/Snake River System. Tugboats and barges transport millions of tons of grain 550 miles to the ports of Vancouver and Portland. The bridge has a high clearance to accommodate this river traffic.

While this bridge may be significant for its location and its role in the dams etc.. design wise, YUCK! This is probably the most textbook example of a UCEB that I've ever seen, and it is definitely painful to look at (although in this case, I think it's technically a "USEB", or "Ugly Steel Eyesore Bridge", since the superstructure is a steel stringer bridge and only the piers are concrete).
