The Coulee Dam Bridge is located in the Town of Coulee Dam a short distance downstream from Grand Coulee Dam. The bridge was built in the mid 1930s about the time that construction began on the dam. The horizontal and vertical clearances are now substandard. I would guess that the state will replace this bridge within the next decade or two.
Coulee Dam is the only incorporated city in the state whose area is located in three counties. Within the city the area northeast of the Columbia River is in Okanogan County. To the southwest, parts of the city are in Douglas and Grant Counties.
Most photos of this bridge show Grand Coulee Dam in the background. To be different, I took the photo from a point between the dam and bridge. The photo was taken in September 2001.
