|August 2015 (39.58518 Degrees, -121.43086 Degrees) Canyon Creek Bridge|
If the scenery is nice, the bridge's appearance becomes less important. Tall piers and a long straight superstructure suffice to make the 50 year old Canyon Creek Bridge look good crossing this rugged landscape.
The Canyon Creek Bridge (12 0184) is a 780 ft long, four span, steel girder bridge, on tall concrete piers. The bridge has a narrow (28 ft wide) deck without shoulders. The barrier includes a narrow sidewalk that pedestrians can use to avoid traffic (1500 vehicles a day). A short radius curve and considerable terracing was required to squeeze State Route 162 along the east side of the creek.
