I don't think this one is 'too' weird.
It's a swing span bridge and the bridge cabins' are pretty normal.
I Googled Coos Bay and it seems they have a couple swing span bridges around the bay.

Some of you might know this one. It's in Montréal, Canada.
The name of the bridge is Pont Victoria.


There are two bridges, one in a straight line and one curved.
Both bridges go over a lock-gate.
The curved bridge was build to make it possible for trains to travel while the other lock-gate was opened.
The other interesting part is the configuration of the roads beside / over / under the railroad track.


These are the coordinates for google maps: 45.494992,-73.519714








Photo by the lock-gate.
Two road lanes are under the railroadbridge, the other two are passing beside.





The other side of the road is passing above the railroad track. See also the next photo.

OT:
Montréal is not only a place for weird bridges - cryptic messages on tombstones are also a speciality there.
Now back to  bridges...

How about a bridge with an almost right-angled crossing in the middle of it?

It even looks like there is a switch at the end?
B.t.w., the lenght and height are impressive.

What about this one, not that crazy but I had never seen this construction form before.

Text from internet:
Bollman Truss North Branch Bridge built in late 1857 to replace the wooden bridge.
This 1858 photo appear in Geo. B. Abdill book Civil War Railroads and Daniel Toomey's book The War Came by Train.
The new iron bridge was destroyed by the Confederate Army in May 1861, June 1863 and a third time on February 2, 1864.
