Mendocino County, California Bridges: Highway 1 Bridge across Ten Mile River

September 2017 (39.54917-123.76278) Ten Mile River Bridge
Ten Mile River Bridge (10 0274) is an eight span prestressed concrete box girder bridge that was built in 2009. It replaced a timber deck truss bridge that had been built at this site in 1954 (see photo below, courtesy of the Mendocino County Historical Society).
With the tight radius curve at the south end of the bridge along with it's streamlined appearance and the dramatic landscape of water, sky, and rugged hills, this bridge provides some visual excitement. Note the open barrier rail and sidewalk, which is appropriate for a bridge along the coast.
