description

Summary

Significance: The Buckingham Coulee Bridge is one of the few remaining mostly intact examples of a treated timber stringer bridge in Montana that has not been significantly altered or had maintenance activities done to it that have compromised its structural integrity. The bridge is associated with the agricultural development of the Myers area of Treasure County. It provided direct access to Northern Pacific Railway station at Myers from U.S. Highway 10. It is also an excellent example of the type of treated timber stringer bridge constructed by the Montana Department of Transportation during the New Deal Years of the 1930s.
