San Pablo Creek Bridge

San Pablo Creek

The NBI database says there is an arch under this section of freeway for the passage of San Pablo Creek. Short of feigning a vehicle breakdown there is no way to stop and check what is actually the design under the freeway.

Craig,

You can pull up Bing's Bird's Eye View and get a rough idea of what's under there. Looks like a glorified culvert.

San Pablo Creek "Bridge"

This bridge/culvert is a cautionary example of importing data from the NBI just because it has "arch" in the description.
