Arroyo Quemado Bridge
Clarification on Arroyo Quemado vs. Arroyo Hondo
Written by Ian Bowen
The Arroyo Hondo bridge is closed to vehicular traffic but is open to pedestrians.
The Arroyo Quemado bridge, of similar age and appearance and located just east of Arroyo Hondo, remains open to traffic, carrying the southbound lanes of the US 101 freeway. As the barriers on either side of the traffic lanes have been changed, the age of the bridge is not immediately apparent to traffic passing over it. Its substructure, however, is visible from the northbound lanes of US 101.
