|April 2014 (38.18889, -121.32194) Peltier Road Bridge|
The Peltier Road Bridge (29C0037) is an 881 ft long viaduct with a 152 foot long Parker camelback truss span across the Mokelumne River. The bridge is only 24 ft wide, it has a vertical clearance of 14.7 ft, and it was built in 1948.
The bridge was closed in 1973 when the portal frame was struck by a truck carrying an oversized load on a trailer. According to the Lodi News-Sentinel the driver's insurance company agreed to pay for the repairs since the driver was driving without a permit. This was the only bridge over the Mokelumne for many miles and the bridge had to be closed for several months while repairs were made.
