|December 2013 (38.36778 Degrees, -122.30278 Degrees) Oak Knoll Bridge|
Immediately west of the Silverado Trail, Oak Knoll Avenue crosses over the Napa River Overflow and the Napa River. I photographed the Napa River Bridge but I somehow missed the arch and T beam bridges across the Overflow. However, Craig Philpott
took a nice photo of the 1910 Stone Arch Bridge (21C0104) for the Bridgehunter Website.
The Oak Knoll Avenue Bridge (21C0067) was built in 1930 over the Napa River. It's a 130 ft long three span T girder bridge with a 61 ft long center span. It's only 19.4 ft wide between the barriers and supported by decorative pier walls and end diaphragm abutments.
Next to the T girder bridge is a little suspension bridge. I assume a farmer owns the land on both sides of the river and finds it convenient to haul goods using a wheel that rides on the cable. Or it could be used for some much different purpose.Napa County, California Bridges: Oak Knoll Avenue Bridge across the Napa River
