Trying to understand and use logical inclusion and naming criteria since nothing else is listed anywhere beyond the About-Introduction.

So the reason not to have the 2010 bridge is what? The database has lots of newer bridges and lots of steel stringers. It would be great if guidance were given.

Posted November 12, 2020

There were only two bridge pages for this location, but there are 3 bridges: the 1964 original that used parts of the BH 71482 Seneca River bridge, the temporary Bailey from 1990 to 2010, and the 2010 new build. The 1964 bridge was present, but had partially collapsed and was not the structure is use, from 1990 to 2010. If they put the Bailey on the old footings, that can be noted. The pictures were not correct for the 2010 bridge.

So what are the naming conventions? I have submitted questions to the webmaster, but not gotten a response yet.

So, should the naming be defaulted to the railroad that built the bridge or to the last,current user of the bridge?

Guidance would be much appreciated.

I added a link to the Web Archive page for the news article- direct link has no access.

Looking at old topo maps, 2 miles southeast from 1906 Janesville shows Spring Brook a likely crossing.

Luke,

1) What is the source for the history statement "Removed ca. 1907"? Everything I've seen says the rail service continued until 1930.

2)What is the image/info sourced from Sparsely Sage and Timely? I don't see anything applicable on the cited page.

Platform Bridge (California)

"As of January 13, 2020, the bridge known as the Old Tocaloma/Platform Bridge, which runs parallel to Sir Francis Drake Boulevard at its intersection with Platform Bridge Road ~2 miles east of Olema, is closed to all vehicular traffic until further notice. The bridge is being closed to vehicular traffic due to structural deficiencies that make the weight of a vehicle unsafe to cross over the bridge."

https://www.usbr.gov/newsroom/newsrelease/detail.cfm?RecordI...

"The Bureau of Reclamation, in coordination with the California Department of Parks and Recreation, will temporarily close the Ponderosa Way Bridge over the North Fork American River to vehicles for construction beginning July 15 and ending in December 2022."

“In addition to bridge replacement, the project will repair drainage and surfaces on Ponderosa Way leading to the river and bridge. Foundation work will strengthen and stabilize the concrete supports on the edge of the river.”

"The single-lane bridge will be replaced with an updated design using newer construction techniques. The new bridge will have a weight rating sufficient for fire engines, enhancing the area’s fire response."

Appears this road (which includes bridge area) is due for work by the county in 2021:

Narrowing down possible location across Mill Creek - somewhere between the unnamed bridge in Cascades Gateway Park and Kuebler Blvd.

3 items from https://oregoncoveredbridges.weebly.com/hobson.html

"January 3, 1938: "Hobson bridge near prison annex out with piers undermined. This road closed and impossible to make repairs as yet."(Daily Capital Journal)"

"June 25, 1940: "The Marion county court yesterday ordered closing of the Hobson bridge located two miles northeast of the penitentiary annex pending a decision on whether to repair the structure or rebuild it entirely. It is chiefly used for hauling of hay across Mill creek." (Statesman Journal)"

"August 10, 1941: "Near the penitentiary annex and built across Mill creek is the Hobson bridge. Constructed in the early 1890's, the structure was on a main trade route from the surrounding hills to Salem. Early settlers used this route to come to Salem for their shopping and to catch the river steamer to Portland. Today, condemned, it is in the heart of a 'lovers' lane.'" (Statesman Journal)"

"Mill Creek Correctional Facility (MCCF) - In 1929, the former State Training School in Salem was turned over to the Penitentiary for use as a subsidiary minimum security prison, called the Annex Farm (later renamed Mill Creek Correctional Facility)."

Being rebuilt after damage in early July from falling tree.

"A week of heavy rain brought a large maple crashing down on the site’s historic Long White Bridge, taking out most of the railing, warping the deck and creating major structural cracks. After an assessment of the damage, it was clear a major rebuild was in order."

County has plans to remove this bridge after new one is completed is a few years:

Per the source below, the construction is of a new bridge (spliced precast prestressed concrete girder) parallel to the old one, which will solely handle southbound traffic.

Note the info from Yankee Hill Historical Society:

https://yankeehillhistory.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/Con...

"On March 30, 1903, one week after the California Gas and Electric Corporation acquired the Concow Reservoir in the power company consolidations, the dam failed. ... The force of the flooding washed out the wooden covered Nelson Bar Bridge. The bridge was replaced with a steel bridge. (That bridge was torn down when Lake Oroville was filled in 1967)."
