|March 2014 (37.07427 Degrees, -122.08396 Degrees) Glen Arbor Road Bridge|
I had to ask a local resident's permission to enter his backyard to photograph this bridge. There was no public access available to see the San Lorenzo River at this location. The Glen Arbor Road Bridge (36C0040) turned out to be a 3-span continuous, cast-in-place, reinforced concrete box girder bridge. This bridge is 217 ft long with a 115 ft long main span and it was built in 1968.
It's an attractive modern bridge with very wide overhangs and tall single column bents. The circular columns have pinched one-way flares on top. The west abutment is considerably larger to support the widened superstructure that allows traffic to make left and right turns onto State Route 9.
