SP - Georgiana Slough Bridge
Posted September 23, 2016, by Victor A. Fisher (victorarthurfisher [at] yahoo [dot] com)

I grew up in the Delta and remember that bridge distinctly. It remained in place for quite some time after the listed "removal" date of 1971. The line was abandoned in the late 1970's, after a flood in Isleton. I visited that bridge once with my Dad before it was removed in the early 1980's. The bridge was removed post abandonment, probably sometime in the 1980-1983 time frame. Art
