|August 2012 (39.04000 Degrees, -120.90278 Degrees) Yankee Jim's Bridge|
According to the Bridgehunter, the Yankee Jim Bridge (19C0002) is a wire suspension bridge built in 1930 with a 210 ft span and with 13.7 ft vertical clearance above the deck. The website goes on to say that the bridge is structurally deficient with a score of 2.1 out of 100 and an average daily traffic of 549 vehicles.
I grew up in a part of Michigan where all the counties are rectangular (and made up of rectangular townships). California has 58 counties. All the bridge numbers in Placer County begin with the number 19 (and a C if it's a county bridge). We'll take a closer look at Yankee Jim's Bridge and other bridges in Placer County over the next few days.
