Newport Bay Bridge
Also know as the Yaquina Bay Bridge.
This is one of eleven bridges on the Oregon Coast designed by Conde McCullough. Construction started August 1, 1934, and took just over two years. It opened on September 6, 1936. 220 people worked on it at a cost of $1,301,016. 33,000 cubic yards of concrete and 3,100 tons of steel were used in it’s construction.
Part of Portland’s “Keep Portland Weird” slogan seems to be the “Art Car.” These are normal, every day vehicles that have been modified, painted, glued, glittered, and weighed down with what is quite frequently perceived as random junk in the name of art.
These cars are quite frequent. The Gargoyle Car, the “Clown” Car, the Missile toting Datsun, the Baby Doll Car, and many others, are part of this culture.
Making an Art Car is easy. Take an old car you don’t care about, some hot glue, paint, and the contents of a Goodwill store and let inspiration take hold. If inspiration doesn’t come, get some alcohol, a few friends and start randomly glueing pieces on to the car.
