The Owsley bridge is a national historic place. It spans the Snake River between Twin Falls and Gooding counties on Old Highway 30.
Constructed in 1921, the Owsley Bridge is 430 feet long and represents a great feat for transportation. The cost was then a whopping $127,000. It’s the only continuous cantilevered through-truss bridge on the state highway system. According to the Idaho State Historical Society, it’s one of the very few cantilevered structures in the state. When it opened in 1921, businesses in Hagerman and Buhl closed for the day and the communities held a massive celebration. In 1998, the bridge was registered on the National Register of Historic Places. It is commemorated for its importance in Idaho’s early transportation infrastructure.
