This bridge, also known as the Fall Creek Bridge (built in 1938),
because of its location over Fall Creek. It has a length of 120
ft. It is unique in that it contains the longest timbers
ever cut for a bridge in Oregon. Because of the size of these
timbers it was rough-hewn in the woods, prepared and resurfaced before
being moved and placed into position. This bridge replaced
an existing 192 ft. span, originally build in 1904. The
replacement bridge was closed in 1979 and delays resulted in
the bridge not being completely repaired until 1995 when it was again
opened to traffic.
The bridge can be reached by taking Hwy. 58 from its junction with
Interstate 5, going east to Parkway Road. This road will take you
to the community of Jasper. There you turn southeast onto
Jasper-Lowell Road and travel about 3 miles. Then turn left
(east) on Little Falls Creek road and travel 1/4 mile to Place Road.

Notice the small roof over the window in the bridge.
The picture above shows that window from inside the bridge.

This bridge along with Unity and Lowell covered bridges are ones that
