Monterey County, California Bridges: Big Creek Bridge
(36.07000, -121.59833) Big Creek Bridge
Continuing along Highway 1 on the Pacific Coast we arrived at the Big Creek Bridge, a 600 ft long bridge with two 180 ft long arch spans. This bridge was designed in 1938 by Christian Gutleben who made a specialty of designing arch bridges in California.
Like most of the bridges along the coast, the Big Creek Bridge is a 24 ft wide bridge with two traffic lanes and no shoulders. And like most of these bridges along the coast, the concrete is in poor shape due to the marine environment.
