|December 2012 (39.3618 Degrees, -120.7503 Degrees) Maybert Road Bridge|
Bridgehunter (my copy of 'Historic Highway Bridges of California' gives the date as 1895). It's structurally deficient (scoring 5.0 out of 100 during the last inspection). If it ever had a steel railing it's long gone. Timber stringers are supported by steel floor beams that extend past the deck and are attached to diagonal tension members and latticed, vertical members. The bridge is scheduled for replacement in 2014. Average daily traffic is 100 vehicles, which justifies the construction cost of $400,000 or about $200 per square foot.
