Stevens Creek Bridge
Posted May 21, 2009, by Gene McCluney (mccluney [at] sbcglobal [dot] net)

There was obviously an even older bridge at this location, as evident by the tall lally columns still standing. What is interesting is that the older bridge was higher than the replacement bridge. In my bridge hunting, I observe that in general replacement bridges are normally built higher than the ones they replace. Not always, though.
