Cottage Grove, OR, December 3, 2011 - The restored Chambers Covered Railroad Bridge was dedicated and opened for public use on December 3, 2011. Thank you to everyone who joined us for the celebration. Check out the photos and video of the project on this page.
The City of Cottage Grove, Oregon is proud of the efforts to restore the only remaining covered railroad bridge in Oregon and what we believe is the only remaining covered railroad bridge west of the Mississippi. Our efforts have been under way for about two years.
We have posted information on the City of Cottage Grove web page at: http://www.cottagegrove.org. Included on the webpage is a video of the "launch" or moving of the bridge back into its proper place. The video is also posted on YouTube: Moving the historic Chambers Covered Bridge. The move occurred on October 6th.
