Volume 7:
Tour Wonderful Covered Bridges

Lane County, Oregon is the covered bridge capital of the Western United States.

Map of Lane County covered bridges


Lane was the first county to build covered bridges on a large scale and still maintains more than any other county west of the Mississippi River.

See through the Dorena Covered Bridge


A truss and housing design furnished by the State Highway Department was used for most, but not all, Lane County covered bridges. Sixteen bridges are owned and maintained by Lane County and are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  Fourteen of these are still open to traffic, a testimony to timely rehabilitation and continued good maintenance.


Oregon covered bridges are typically built of native Douglas fir. They were covered to protect them from the rainy weather.

 

   Wooden approach to Dorena Covered Bridge


This approximately tripled the lifespan of a wooden bridge. Many of Oregon's covered bridges have been preserved, and are popular visitors' attractions.

All Lane County covered bridges are easy to visit by automobile. No federal funds go to any Lane County covered bridge.


The South Lane area has the majority of those within the County.   The South Lane bridges are well marked for a tour that begins in the City of Cottage Grove.
