|April 2013 (38.50167°, -120.78639°) Fiddletown Road Bridge|
The North Fork Dry Creek Bridge (26C0053) supports Fiddletown Road at the location where Dry Creek suddenly shifts from the south to the north side of the road. It's a single span cast-in-place box girder bridge that was built in 2007. That seems to be the year that Amador County upgraded many of their roads with new bridges. The bridge is 135 ft long and 32 ft wide with two lanes and wide shoulders. The current bridge carries about 2000 vehicles a day on a road that carries traffic from SR49 to SR88 and then through Carson Pass into Nevada.
The current bridge replaced a little (25 ft long) arch bridge that was built in 1930, rehabilitated in 1960, and replaced in 2007. We'll take a look at another North Fork Bridge on Fiddletown Road tomorrow.
