“A perfect example of Covered Bridge”
The Grave Creek Bridge is a covered bridge in Josephine County in the U.S. state of Oregon. It carries Sunny Valley Loop Road over Grave Creek about north of Grants Pass and within sight of Interstate 5 (I-5). Built in 1920, it originally carried U.S. Route 99, the Pacific Highway. The only remaining covered bridge in Josephine County, it is "Oregon's most viewed covered bridge" because of its location near I-5. The structure was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1979. It was closed for repairs in the late 1990s and reopened in 2001. The Howe truss bridge features six Gothic windows on each side as well as rounded portals and a shake roof. The original architects were A. A. Clausen and J. Elmer Nelson.
The Grave Creek covered span at Sunny Valley, about 15 miles north of Grants Pass, can be seen by motorists traveling Interstate 5.
Features of the wooden structure include six gothic style windows on either side, concrete abutments, a Howe truss, rounded portals and a shake roof.
Actual location is about 6 miles east of this mark. It is on the east side of I-5 next to the Applegate Museum.
Pretty bridge. The last one in Josephine County. LOTS of traffic on a Saturday. No walking room on the bridge and it doesn’t help with all the traffic trying to get photos. I would still recommend if you like covered bridges to go and see it.
Just off the highway, nice quick photo spot.
