Centennial Covered Bridge

The Centennial Covered Bridge is a scale replica covered bridge located in Cottage Grove, Oregon, United States. It is 84 feet (26 m) long and spans the Coast Fork Willamette River carrying pedestrian traffic alongside Main Street. It was built in 1987, the hundredth year since the founding of the city.

It is a three-eighths scale (37.5%) replica of the Chambers Covered Bridge, a railroad bridge no longer in service located about a half mile upstream. It is ten feet wide and fourteen feet high (3 m by 4 m) and carries only bicycle and foot traffic. It was constructed mostly by volunteers from timbers salvaged from the Meadows and Brumbaugh bridges which were dismantled in 1979.
