These next two bridges are found on the central Oregon coast.

The bridge is 2,910 ft (890 m) in length, with a 450 ft (140m) main span that provides 70 ft (21m) of vertical clearance.
The Yaquina Bay Bridge
This arch bridge with a suspended deck is 3,450 ft (1071 m) long, with a 659 ft (201m) main span. It opened in 1936.
