Just downstream from yesterday's truss arch bridge is a three span haunched box girder bridge across the San Lorenzo River. The Graham Hill Road Bridge (36C0101) was built in 1938 and rehabilitated (widened) in 1989.
We are in the town of Felton, which like Boulder Creek has a history as a logging town during the later half of the 19th century. This is a pretty and a historic area with a variety of interesting bridges that we'll study over the next few days.
The Graham Hill Road Bridge is a 221 ft long bridge with a 116 ft long main span. The deck is now 78 ft wide and on a 40 degree skew. The bridge is in 'Good' condition, it carries over 25,000 vehicles a day, and it has a sufficiency rating of 85.
