Ritner Creek bridge was the last covered bridge situated on an Oregon state highway.
The original covered bridge was moved just downstream from its original site in 1976 and a modern concrete bridge built in its place.
The covered bridge was constructed in 1927 by Hamer and Curry Contractors to Oregon State Highway Commission plans.
The original portal design was rounded at the edges but was changed to a square design in the early 1960s to accommodate larger loads to pass.
