Very few people know of this bridge, as it is nearly impossible to see from any of the roads, and you don't even get a very good view of the arch from the bike path. Tens of thousands of people a day pass by on the 16+ lane monstrosity next to it.
The design is more spartan than many of the other concrete arch bridges in southern California - no design flourishes on this bridge. It is a very clean and delicate looking structure. There is also a very slight curvature to the bridge, just barely noticeable.
This bridge was the location of a notorious murder in December 1986.
It's a shame people park illegally here, deface everything with graffiti and toss litter around. Wish the city would do something about it.
Nice old bridge. It's hard to image a time when this bridge only carried two way traffic.
