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

I have been able to locate very pictures of this bridge, given it's location along the line. Here's a link to one photo of the center column (for the swing pivot).

Per State of California details, the remaining piers/pilings of this bridge were removed between 1984 and 1988.
