San Joaquin County, California Bridges: Tracy Boulevard Bridge across the Grant Line Canal

April 2014 (37.82000-121.45000 Degrees) Grant Line Canal Bridge
After crossing the Middle River Bridge, I turned south onto Tracy Blvd and arrived at the Grant Line Canal Bridge (29C0022). This is a long concrete trestle bridge (built in 1959) with bascule spans over the canal. 
The bridge is 471 ft long with 163 ft long bascule spans. It's 28 ft wide and provides about 17 ft vertical clearance over the canal. The bridge is 55 years old and was never rehabilitated. It carries 2000 vehicles a day, it's in satisfactory condition, and has a sufficiency rating of 57. 

My feeling is that this bridge may still be opened and closed.
