This foot bridge is a 368 ft long three span Pratt Truss that was built in 1906. It looks like the piers have had a seismic retrofit to prevent the spans from unseating during an earthquake.
Winters after the railroad's demise.
The bridge was renamed in 2008 in honor of the former mayor of Winters who had worked to convert this old railroad bridge to pedestrian foot bridge. A timber railroad bridge had stood at this spot from 1875 until it was replaced by the steel truss bridge in 1906. In 1977 the Southern Pacific Railroad donated the bridge and the approaches to the City of Winters.
