The bridges carries Pacific Avenue from Playa Del Rey (a district of Los Angeles) across Ballona Creek to a spike which separates the creek for a large marina (Marina Del Rey). The bridge is currently only open to pedestrians and cyclist (and fishermen) but it is much too substantial to have had that as its original purpose. Pacific Avenue continues on the other side of the marina but it is not clear if the bridge originally reach that far or if the Marina passage was added later, separating the rest of Pacific Avenue form the bridge. There was a bridge there at least 1934.
