|October 2013 (39.1343 Degrees, -121.5895 Degrees) State Route 70 Bridge|
The next bridge across the Yuba River is a 27 span continuous concrete box girder bridge on pier walls built in 1960. The State Route 70 Bridge (16 0034) is on wide, thin pier walls. Its 2400 ft long, with 90 ft long river spans, and carries four traffic lanes.
The bridge appears to be in fairly good shape (SR of 75.4) and carries about 36,000 vehicles a day. Very high gauges on the sides of piers (as well as water stains) suggest the river can get quite high during flood stage.
On the north side of the river is a ramp for carrying pedestrians onto the sidewalk and over the river. The area around the river is full of transients, habitats for humanity, half-way houses, and it appears to support an impoverished population.
