It was 1962 and the big news in Astoria--a new bridge connecting small Washington towns to the big city of Astoria Oregon ( a population of 10,000 people)! This became the popular dubbed bridge to nowhere!

Many lost their lives in the very powerful free pouring of huge amounts of cement to be the foundation of the footings of this huge structure.
Location was chosen because it actually crosses at the bay and is the narrowest point .
Talk was solid ground was never found. Many in salem, it was rumored would not travel because it probably was unsafe. However,
It still stands tall majestically over the mighty Columbia!
