|May 2014 (37.39452 Degrees, -121.81178 Degrees) Alum Rock Park Bridge|
The first bridge I photographed was in Alum Rock Park, which had half a dozen nice bridges. Most of these are intricately-shaped stone arch bridges, but the Alum Rock Park Bridge is a concrete closed spandrel arch bridge with a stucco-like appearance. This bridge is so big, that I had trouble getting the whole structure into a single photo. The bridge has several parts including a long arch over Penitencia Creek and a 'T' girder span over Alum Rock Avenue. The arch has a large superelevation at one end that gives it a highly distorted appearance. We'll take another look at this interesting bridge tomorrow.
