To say nothing of the fact that they apparently even had a crane on site able to lift the bridge off its substructure for relocation and preservation.

One would think with being located in a county park, that the truss bridge would have made a very nice pedestrian span.

Guess that's just my warped "Pontist" logic creeping in again!

Hans, thank you for the updating photos on the bridge replacement project.

This bridge was replaced with a new 370' long cast-in-place post-tensioned box girder with spans of 111'-148' and 111'. The new bridge was opened to traffic in October of 2010. It is supported on large diameter drilled shafts at Abutment 1 and Bents 2 and 3 and driven steel H-piles at Abutment 4. The construction cost, with the associated roadway work, was approximately $1.8 million. The new bridge was constructed by MCM of Sacramento and designed by MGE Engineering, Inc also of Sacramento. CH2M HILL perfomed the bridge construction management-and the attached photos were taken by Hans Strandgaard of CH2M HILL. One shows the completed new structure and the the other, a lift of one of the spans of the existing during removal.
