|February 2013 (38.7224 Degrees, -120.8452 Degrees) Green Valley Road Bridge|
The Green Valley Bridge is a 100 ft long single span reinforced concrete T girder bridge built in 1926. We are in the Placerville/Diamond Springs area, which must have been growing in the 1920s and reinforced concrete was the material of choice for their river crossings. Like yesterday's Newtown Road Bridge, this single span structure has haunches at the abutments and nice formwork that includes slight recesses in the girders.
Unfortunately, I climbed right down the riverbank, which was covered in blackberry and poison oak, to take this photo.
