|November 2012 (38.9155 Degrees, -121.0404 Degrees) State Route 49 Bridge|
The State Route 49 Bridge (19 0035) crosses what is still called the North Fork south of the confluence of the two rivers. It is a three span steel stringer bridge on concrete pier walls and seat-type abutments. It is 348.1 ft long with a 173.9 ft center span across the river.
We can see the remains of the previous bridge (from 1948) lying in the river beneath the current bridge (from 1965). I recall a big flood in 1964 that caused a lot of damage all along the west coast of the US.
