Fifth Street Bridge
Posted August 1, 2014, by John Johnston (PalmSpringsSCal [at] hotmail [dot] com)

hello, The location of this bridge is a few feet south of tthe original ferry crossing around 1849. A bridge was build shortly afterward. The railroad built their bridge around the time plans were made to send the rail to SFfrom here.The biggest issue they had was sending rail across the swamps of the valley to SF.Im going from my memory from the 90's. I had bound newspapers of the 1860s where i got some info. i believe it was the marysville library and local museums who will have when the original bridge was built and pictures.

If I still have any info in my boxed files.Ill post them here.
