|February 2013 (38.71669 Degrees, -120.8362 Degrees) Weber Creek Bridge|
A last few photos of the old and new State Route 50 Bridges across Weber Creek. I scrambled through heavy brush to get this photo, but I'm a little paranoid of riparian vegetation since I got a severe poison oak rash recently. Nothing helped until I finally got my doctor to prescribe some Prednisone, which really works.
This bridge reminds me of the Forni Road Bridge across Weber Creek that we previously studied since it's pretty much of a slab bridge with supports at the sides. However, this bridge has more diaphragms, which the Forno Road Bridge was able to do without. Another strange thing is the building paper falling out of the expansion joints. It seems strange that paper would still be coming out of a 75 year old bridge.
Well, this old bridge presents more questions than answers. Perhaps someone familiar with the old highway can enlighten us?
