Yaquina Bay Bridge and the bay marina.
The Yaquina Bay Bridge is an arch bridge that spans Yaquina Bay south of Newport, Oregon. It is one of the most recognizable of the U.S. Route 101 bridges.
The bridge opened on September 6, 1936, at a cost of $1,301,016. A total of 220 people worked to pour 30,000 cubic yards of concrete and fabricate 3,100 tons of steel.
The main span is flanked by identical 350 ft steel arches. The rest of the structure is constructed of reinforced concrete.
