"Work was progressing last week at the site of a temporary Bailey-type bridge at Shady Cove. A crew was driving pilings near the flood-destroyed Steve Wilson mill when this picture was taken. Parts for the temporary bridge were already at the site. A permanent bridge is being constructed where the old one was taken out by the flood. The temporary bridge may be completed by March 15. It will be dismantled when the permanent structure is ready for traffic, about June 15." Medford Mail Tribune, February 21, 1965, page 2
