American River Bridges: Howe Avenue Bridges

Just a couple miles further downstream are the Howe Avenue Bridges. Each bridge is an eleven span, reinforced concrete box girder bridge carrying two traffic lanes and a sidewalk. This is the most popular kind of bridge built in California and the industry is very competitive for cast-in-place construction. The bridges are supported on tall, thin pier walls and they were built in 1969 and never widened or seismically retrofitted.
