|December 2013 (38.50285, -122.46615 Degrees) Main Street Bridge|
The original bridge was built by A. Martini, designed by G.H. Wallace, and it's owned by Caltrans. During the last inspection the bridge scored good for the deck, superstructure, and substructure, it had a sufficiency rating of 60, and it carried over 18,000 vehicles a day.
This bridge is on a 35 degree skew. I wonder if it's even possible to build a skewed arch? More likely they put the bridge deck on a skew. Also, I wonder if the quarry can cut stones so that they span the whole width of the arch? You just order the stones 30 ft long and place them on the wooden form? However, if you built a skewed arch every stone would have to be a different length.
