Feather River in Yuba County. However, the really big bridges are across the branches higher up in the Sierras.
Eric Sakowski states, "The second highest double decker road and rail bridge in the world after the Pit River Bridge, the West Branch Feather River cantilever bridge is one of 4 high spans that cross Lake Oroville in Northern California. The creation of America’s deepest man-made lake started in the early 1960s when construction began on the Oroville Dam. Completed in 1968, the earth fill structure is the highest in the United States measuring 770 feet (235 meters) from base to crest."
I'll visit bridges across Lake Oroville and across the various branches of the Feather River over the next few weeks.
