Oregon by Greyhound • The Dorena Bridge

The Adventure Dorena Covered Bridge
Location LAT 43° 44' 14.6"  N  LON 122° 53' 301.4" W 
Date March 21, 2009
Weather 46°, Raining
Distance 93.6  miles

One of the more modern covered bridges on our quest, Dorena was a very beautiful bridge.

Built in 1949, she actually had louvered windows unlike the other enclosed bridges in Land county.

The bridge spans the Row River just before it dumps into Dorena Reservoir. The bridge is named after the town Dorena, now at the bottom of the reservoir since 1946.

Even though the bridge is large enough for two cars to pass, is was by-passed by a concrete span in 1974.
