Grants Pass residents and guests celebrated the rehabilitation of the Caveman Bridge. The 1931 arched bridge serves as the gateway to the Redwood Highway and is an icon to travelers and residents. The project brought the bridge back to it’s original beauty and updated it for seismic stability and today’s modern traffic.
