Arroyo Seco Bridge (#53+0166) - Ventura Freeway Bridge
Posted October 19, 2007, by David Kimbrough (kimbrough-photo [at] charter [dot] net)

This is actually the junction of California Highway 134 (Ventura Freeway) and Interstate 210 (Foothill Freeway). It is just between the Colorado Stree Bridge and the Holly Stree Bridge. These other two bridges were built many decades earlier than this bridge. They all cross over the Arroyo Seco which is very deep and narrow along its entire length but espcially at this point.
