Sonoma County, California Bridges: NWPRR Bridge across the Russian River (1)

September 2014 (38.60499 Degrees-122.86044 Degrees) NWPRR Bridge
Continuing north on the Old Redwood Highway we arrived at the Russian River and another Northwest Pacific Railroad Bridge. This structure is composed of three different truss spans including a 181 ft long Parker truss span across the river. It was built in 1921, it's eligible for registration as a historic place, and the Sonoma-Marin Area Rail Transit (SMART) Line is hoping to make it part of their new commuter service. Many more interesting photos of this bridge can be found at the Bridgehunter Website.
