|February 2013 (38.7084 Degrees, -120.8136 Degrees) Southern Pacific Viaduct|
It's interesting how little Weber Creek eventually created such a huge valley that needed to be crossed by such a tall viaduct. A railroad bridge needs to be longer and therefore taller than a highway bridge to avoid steep grades, which explain why this viaduct is even taller than the State Route 50 Bridges that we've been studying over the past few days.
