|March 2013 (38.32634°, -120.99151°) Cook Road Bridge|
The original bridge was considered of historic importance as the oldest metal truss bridge in California that was built by the San Francisco Bridge Company. Because it is eligible for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places the county didn't just sell the original bridge for scrap metal. I found it sitting a couple of miles away on the edge of a golf course (38.35466°, -120.95880°). Perhaps they are hoping eventually to use it to carry golf carts over a water hazard.
