|April 2014 (38.21389 Degrees, -121.29194 Degrees) Forest Lake Underpass|
I couldn't find much written about today's bridge. The Forest Lake UP (29C0132) was likely built at the beginning of the 20th century. Although it has a concrete facade, it is actually a two span steel girder bridge. When it was built, there must have been pedestrians who found it convenient to walk under the 14 ft long western span while horse drawn vehicles used the 23 ft long main span. The surrounding area has changed but the bridge remains the same. While I was photographing it several freight trains crossed over the spans.
