Roberts Creek Bridge
Posted October 14, 2020, by Matt Lohry

Visited this bridge on 10/14/2020; it is still extant and has no posted load limit. This bridge is mostly Warren configuration, but the center panel on each truss has a Pratt/like X, which I know has been brought up before on this website. The bridge looks to be in excellent condition with no pack rust or modifications that I could see. The bridge is fairly heavily used by trucks and farm equipment.
