Description 

One of two high-level bridges across New Melones Reservoir. Although both bridges feature a modern prestressed concrete box girder construction, both bridges are notable as two of the highest bridges in the United States.

The other nearby bridge is the Archie Stevenot Memorial Bridge on CA-49.
