I live in the area so you can contact me at norcalroadswebsite@gmail.com if you need any road information. If you're going to visit this bridge, just be advised that Jordan Hill coming from the southern (Concow/Parkhill) end is extremely rough so it's better to visit it via the northern (Paradise/Magalia) end.

Wonderful.

I have several bridges I want to look at on/off Quincy-LaPorte, maybe I'll make a longer trip and include this one too, and any others in the region I find.

UPDATE: Reports of deck being destroyed turned out to be untrue, bridge was confused with a modern pedestrian truss bridge. I genuinely have no idea how it was that wrong, but here we are. Bridge is spared and open to traffic.

I wasn't sure either, so I didn't change it. I'd probably have changed it to derelict/abandoned rather than lost. Not sure that it's *right*, but seems more accurate than lost.

If the superstructure (trusses) are still standing then the bridge should not be classified as "Lost".

I'm honestly not sure- it's lost for the time being i suppose, but not permanently. Unless it is permanent, because the road it's on is private and not well traveled and Butte County is notoriously stingy with infrastructure funding.

does "deck burned off" qualify as "lost"?
