The Parvin Bridge is a covered bridge located in Lane County, Oregon, U.S. near Dexter. It was built in 1921 as a single-lane 75-foot (23 m) bridge across Lost Creek, a tributary of the Middle Fork Willamette River.
The bridge was a replacement for a 66-foot (20 m) Howe truss design which failed a 1917 inspection by bridge inspector J. W. McArthur. He wrote, "An old bridge. Chords badly worm eaten. Downstream chord has been reinforced in middle by a timber bolted on. Wood is but little better than a powder from worm action. All signs indicate a new bridge in from 2 to 4 years."
George W. Breeding constructed the present bridge at the same site in 1921 for $3,617, equivalent to $47.8 thousand today. It is also a Howe truss and includes a 62-foot (19 m) eastern approach and a 17-foot (5.2 m) western approach. Roadwork in the mid-1970s realigned the road to bypass the bridge, being accessible only to pedestrians afterwards. A dedication ceremony was held November 17, 1986 to reopen the renovated span to vehicle traffic with a 10 short tons (9,100 kg) load limit.
