|January 2013 (38.8015 Degrees, -120.8906 Degrees) Mount Murphy Road Bridge|
Near the center of town is the Mount Murphy Road Bridge (just west of Mount Murphy as shown in the Google earth photo below). It is a 489 ft long bridge with a 162 ft long Pratt truss center span and with reinforced concrete through girder side spans. This bridge was built in 1915 and is just the latest of many bridges built near this site that were eventually swept away by winter floods.
We'll take a closer look at the bridge tomorrow.
