|April 2013 (38.49163 Degrees, -121.09161 Degrees) State Route 16 Bridge|
Continuing north on Ione Road and west on the Jackson Highway (State Route 16) we came to three interesting bridges in Rancho Murieta. The first bridge carries the highway over the Cosumnes River. The State Route 16 Bridge (24 0080) is a three span continuous, cast-in-place box girder bridge. It is 255 ft long with a 134 ft long center span that was built in 1952.
I think they must have added a sidewalk (supported by steel braces) on the north side of the bridge in the 1980s. At that time, the bridge must have picked up a lot more traffic and needed to get pedestrians off the road. The bridge width is 26 ft curb to curb but it's 37.4 ft from edge of deck to edge of deck.
The bridge is supported on pier walls on each side of the Cosumnes River.
