The Salinas River Bridge (49 0106Y, formerly 49 0106), built in 1914, is a Parker through-truss bridge with a concrete deck and steel lattice railings. The bridge is eligible for the National Register of Historic Places at the local level of significance under Criterion A because it served as a locally important crossing for more than 80 years, and under Criterion C as an excellent example in the region of a Parker through-truss bridge. The period of significance is 1914. Replaced in 1997 by bridge 49 0237, this 1914 bridge now serves as a bike and pedestrian bridge.
