Here's some photos I took of the Bradley Bridge some five years ago.

I love that bridge. I think it was also 1953 that Bradley was bypassed by the current freeway, though Cattlemen's Road, which was once Highway 101, remained so as 'Blood Alley' until 1970, when King City and San Ardo were finally bypassed by the current freeway, as other towns in North San Luis Obispo County and the Salinas Valley already were bypassed some time before 1970. A year later Gilroy and Morgan Hill also were bypassed. Here's a Historic California/US 101 sign on Main Street in Morgan Hill, signifying that it was once Highway 101.

This bridge is a "sister" bridge to the Cattlemen Road Bridge. This bridge was built one year later (1930) and is of identical design.
