Seems to me the steel stringers are acting more like piers or bents. I have zero engineering experience, BTW

Based off of http://www.dot.ca.gov/dist1/d1projects/mccoy/0a840_is-pmnd_1... the road is California state highway 271, MEN is the abbreviation for Mendocino County, and 17.92 is the mile marker

Can someone explain to me what 271 MEN and 1792 mean on the sign in picture #2?

NBI has this as a steel stringer. Should the bridge be classified by the wood under the deck or the steel stringers underneath?
