Bridge of Gods Washington OregonIndian lore has stated that it was believed that an earthquake that created the Cascades destroyed the Bridge of the Gods, meaning the old Indian name referencing the geologic event.  Today a steel truss cantilever bridge named Bridge of the Gods exists.  the bridge is 1,127 feet long and was built by a Walla Walla bridge builder and opened in 1926.  After the Bonneville Dam was built, the bridge needed to be made higher.  This is where the concrete extensions were added to increase height due to water levels.
