2011 - Victorian Society Award for Union Street Bridge 
 

The Victorian Society in America awarded the Society’s highest honor in recognition of the restoration and adaptive re-use of the important historic Union Street Railroad Bridge. The Award was presented at 7:30 pm, May 29, 2011, in the Queen Marie Ballroom of the Embassy Suites Hotel, 310 SW Pine Street, Portland, OR. 

The railroad bridge was designed in the early 20th century by Waddell & Harrington, Engineers for the Salem, Falls City and Western Railway and constructed 1912-1913.  It was recently adapted for re-use as a crossing for pedestrians and bicycles over the Willamette River. The restoration architect and engineering firms responsible for the work were HDR Inc. and OBEC Consulting Engineers. The bridge is owned by the City of Salem. The project was made possible by cooperative financial support from the state and city, and when cost estimates exceeded the budget, by The Friends of Two Bridges, a local citizen action group. 

Members of The Victorian Society in America plan to enjoy using bridge when the national organization visits Salem on May 26, 2011.
