Napa County, California Bridges: Pope Street Bridge across Sulphur Creek

December 2013 (38.5050 Degrees, -122.4638 Degrees) Pope Creek Bridge
Continuing west on Pope Street is a 60 ft long single span stone arch bridge over Sulphur Springs. The bridge was built in 1908 but widened to 24 ft with an exterior girder on stone abutments in 1950.
This bridge carries 3000 people a day but has a sufficiency rating of only 25. Unlike the Zinfandel Lane Bridge, this bridge has poor bank protection, which has been deteriorated from previous floods.
