It’s a birthday weekend for the Yaquina Bay Bridge!

This is the weekend Lincoln County history buffs have been waiting for. The Grand Dame of Oregon Coast bridges, the Yaquina Bay Bridge, turns 75 today, commemorating the moment three-quarters of a century ago, when the first cars took their inaugural crossing of Yaquina Bay without having to pay a toll for the ferry or drive around.

Today, Saturday, there will be a very interesting panel discussion between historians and those who were there when the bridge was built. They will be recalling how its construction forever changed the mood and pace of life along the Oregon Coast, as have the other four bridges that were built in the 1930’s. The panel discussion will be held at Newport City Hall, at Avery and Coast Highway, 2pm, in the city council chambers.
