|November 2012 (39.123 Degrees, -120.940 Degrees) Long Ravine RR Trestle Bridge|
Older photos (from 1870) show a long timber trestle bridge, which was replaced with embankments and an 878 ft long steel viaduct, perhaps when the expressway was built. It must have been cheaper to build a long timber trestle bridge than a long embankment in the 19th century.
