|December 2012 (39.3331 Degrees, -120.1626 Degrees) Truckee River Bridge|
Caltrans architects must have helped design the interesting transition between the single column bents and the box girder superstructure. The bridge carries State Route 267 over Glenshire Drive, the Union Pacific Railroad, and the Truckee River.
Part of what makes this bridge so great is the spectacular scenery. At an elevation of over 5000 ft the bridge is dwarfed by the mountains and pine forests that surround it. We'll take a closer look tomorrow.
