|March 2013 (38.30667 Degrees, -120.97500 Degrees) Jackson Creek Bridge|
A couple of miles west of yesterday's bridge, State Route 88 crosses Jackson Creek on another slab bridge. This Jackson Creek Bridge (26 0019) is an eleven span bridge built in 1940. It's 228 ft long, 39 ft wide, and it was getting widened when I visited in March.
In the photos above, it looks like it's only being widened a few feet on each side. Maybe they just need to increase the shoulder width or add a passing lane on this state owned highway bridge. Note the infill walls between the pile extensions, perhaps for stream control or as part of a seismic retrofit. Also, note how much bigger the pile extensions are for the widening.
We'll take another look at this interesting bridge tomorrow.
