Summary

Significance: The Gold Hill Bridge spanning Rogue River is the first and only example of a reinforced-concrete open-spandrel barrel deck arch bridge in the state of Oregon. It is quite atypical of the design that C.B. McCullough preferred in reinforced-concrete arch spans. Virtually all of his deck-arch structures employ the open-spandrel ribbed style of construction.
Unprocessed Field note material exists for this structure: FN-21
Survey number: HAER OR-37
Building/structure dates: 1927 Initial Construction
