Crossing the historic Ferry Street Bridge

Located in Eugene, in the US state of Oregon, the Ferry Street Bridge opened in 1950. It’s one of the most spectacular bridges in the world.

Ferry Street Bridge

It carries Coburg Road in four lanes and is 800 feet (240 m) long. The steel truss bridge spans the Willamette River. The bridge is used by an average of 72,862 vehicles a day. Its design is considered fracture critical, meaning that it lacks a redundancy among its components, which makes the bridge susceptible to partial or total collapse should any one of those components fail.
