About The Author

PREFACE

Follow a picturesque adventure tour along the Oregon Coast’s Interstate 101 that captures the majesty and quirkiness of the state. The 338-mile exploration begins at the California border in Brookings concluding with crossing the expansive Astoria-Megler Bridge into Washington. The background and commentary from each chapter is concise and insightful giving you an intimate glimpse of a West Coast region bountiful in aesthetics and generally absent of tourist herds. Ideal for the roadtrip warrior or day-tripper.

The routing omits sights and attractions that merit equal status as those profiled. The selection was wholly subjective by the author. Since my initial discovery in 2015, I have returned on numerous occasions, predominately during the winter months, to savor fresh attractions and a sparse visitor population. The Oregon Coast has been a remarkable discovery that never ceases to allure and consistently reveals a novel persona with each visit.

Isaac Lee Patterson Bridge

Gold Beach to Wedderburn

The Isaac Lee Patterson Bridge, also known as the Rogue River Bridge is a concrete arch bridge than spans the Rogue River. The bridge extends Highway 101 at the point where the river empties into the Pacific Ocean, connecting the towns of Gold Beach and Wedderburm.

Completed in late 1931, the bridge posed numerous challenges during construction particularly concrete shrinkage. The ferry was officially opened earlier than expected on the day before Christmas due to damage sustained by the ferry Rogue from floodwaters. The bridge was officially dedicated in late May 1932. Designer Conde McCullough employed the Freyssinet method of pre-tensioning the arches during construction using hydraulic jacks. The bridge became the first usage of this technique in the United States. Traversing Oregon from the California border, the bridge becomes the initial introduction to McCullough, but certainly not the last.

The detailing of the bridge incorporates substantial Art Deco motifs, with prominent pylons at the ends, stepped Moderne elements
