Awful lot of money spent on repeatedly updating that stretch of highway, that’s for sure.

Current bridge was built 1994 replacing a 1955 bridge that replaced this.

Excelllent. Thanks for the photo! We’ll have to dig into the inventory to see when the current bridge was built, as that will give us an idea of when this one was replaced. Probably in the 60s when Highway 1 was improved from here and to the south.
