Steamboat Slough Bridge, Paintersville Bridge and Isleton Bridge (also on Route 160 in Sacramento County) all had their control houses replaced circa 2007. Because they are historic, the projects were reviewed by the California State Historic Preservation Officer so that the replacement control houses would be compatible with the bridges, thereby retaining their historic status.
