Roberts Ferry Bridge (1887)

Description 

https://www.hmdb.org/m.asp?m=42617 In 1854 the ferry was either leased or sold to John Morley, moved upstream 3/8 of a mile to this location [present bridge] in 1865, and was once again operated by Roberts in 1872. It remained in Robertsí name until 1887 when he built a wooden truss toll bridge. In 1916 Stanislaus County constructed a new toll-free steel truss bridge, which was used until destroyed by floods in January, 1997.
