|February 2013 (38.7076 Degrees, -120.7635 Degrees) Cedar Ravine Bridge|
The next bridge continuing upstream on Weber Creek was so small that we almost drove past it, but it's another example of the care taken in building these early 20th century reinforced concrete bridges. The formwork was carefully made to provide a cap, a curb, and other details on the massive barriers. The slab is nicely framed into the abutments. The engineer and contractor were so proud of their work that they embedded a plaque in the wall with their names (Henry Lahiff and H. Williamson). The lesson is that no job is too small that it can't benefit from special attention.
