|November 2012 (39.0001 Degrees, -120.940 Degrees) Ponderosa Way Bridge|
For some reason, the most rusted parts of this bridge are a few of the gusset plates. However, the plates appear to be bolted, which should make them easier to replace. Also, some of the truss members have been repainted while others have quite a bit of rust. Hopefully there isn't enough rust to reduce the truss member cross sections. A little bit of maintenance should return this bridge close to its original condition. Since it is eligible to be designated as a historic bridge, the US Forest Service should spend a little money to preserve this part of California's past.
