|April 2013 (38.20778 Degrees, -120.69722 Degrees) Murray Creek Bridge|
Continuing east on State Route 12 we arrived at State Route 49 and the Murray Creek Bridge (30 0030). This is a three span reinforced concrete T girder bridge on rectangular pier walls and diaphragm abutments that was built in 1963. The bridge is 109 ft long and 35 ft wide. The bridge carries 4700 vehicles a day and has a sufficiency rating of 96.9.
I've noticed that the older reinforced concrete bridges have a beige color while the newer bridges are more grey. Probably it depends on the color of sand in the concrete (and whether the bridge is in strong sunlight or shadow).
