Elk Creek BridgeConstructed by the CCC. - Conservation Corps State Museum Photo Archives
Project type: Infrastructure and Utilities, Roads, Bridges, and Tunnels
Site Survival: No Longer ExtantView Project in a Separate Window
This bridge over the Klamath River at Happy Camp was built by the CCC. It had concrete abutments, steel towers and suspension type deck and was 405 feet long. This CCC bridge replaced the original 1920 bridge and was in turn replaced by the current bridge in 1953. The location given is for the 1953 bridge. It is not clear whether the bridges were each built in exactly the same spot, or just somewhere nearby along the same section of the river.

I was raised there in the early 70’s, had to cross that bridge almost every day because we lived in Sulphur Springs! Awww, the memories!
