Centennial Bridge

Pieces of two Lane County bridges (Meadows Bridge and Brumbaugh Bridge) which had been dismantled in 1979 were used to build the Centennial Bridge in 1987. The primarily volunteer effort to erect the bridge honoring Cottage Grove’s 100th birthday proved to be a success. At the dedication ceremony a time capsule was encased in the entrance of the bridge containing items from the 1980s. The Centennial Covered Bridge is a 3/8 scale model of the Chambers Covered Bridge, which is located only a few hundred feet away. It is only 10 feet wide and 14 feet to the roof peak, and thus only handles foot and bicycle traffic. River: Coast Fork of Willamette River Length: 84 feet (26 m) Year Constructed: 1987 Nearest Town: Cottage Grove Located in downtown Cottage Grove adjacent to City Hall on Main Street.
