|August 2015 (39.51772 Degrees, -121.55023 Degrees) Feather River Bridge|
The history of bridges across this part of the Feather River is a history of floods. The first bridge at this site was a covered bridge that was built in 1870 (see photo above courtesy of CDWR). Truss spans were eventually added to the bridge, but it was destroyed by flooding in 1907. It was replaced by the current truss bridge, which was inundated (but not damaged) by flooding in October of 1962, just before the dam was built.
