America's Most Dangerous Bridges
No. 10 Coburg Road over Willamette River (Ferry Street Bridge), Eugene, OR
Eligible for the National Register of Historic Places, this 1950 steel truss bridge was reconstructed in 1999. However, like many of the compromised bridges on the list, the Ferry Street Bridge’s design is considered “fracture critical,” meaning that it lacks a redundancy among its components, which makes the bridge susceptible to partial or total collapse should any one of those components fail.
