|January 2013 (38.79563 Degrees, -120.77600 Degrees) Rock Creek Road Bridge|
Rock Creek is a tributary of the South Fork of the American River. The Rock Creek Road Bridge is a five span 'T' girder bridge across the river on two column bents (with infill walls) that was built in 1936. It's 175.9 ft long with a 35.1 ft main span and a 20 ft deck width. The bridge is on a sharp horizontal curve, it carries only 210 vehicles a day but it's a popular route with bicyclists. The entire bridge (and the surrounding rocks) are covered in colorful graffiti of skulls, devils, eyeballs, etc. The rocks have been slowly sculpted from millions of years of erosion.
