Shasta County, California Bridges: Dog Creek Bridges

May 2008 (40.93846-122.41860) Dog Creek Bridges
Our next stop was a little north of Lakehead where several creeks, a river, local and state highways, and the Union Pacific Railroad all came together. In the photo above (courtesy of AARoads) we see the abandoned Dog Creek (Harlan D. Miller) Bridge, a tall arch bridge built in 1927 which carried U.S. 99 before it was replaced by I-5. To the left is the U.P. Dog Creek Railroad Bridge, which is a continuous, two span plate girder bridge on a stone masonry pier and concrete abutments. We're standing on the Fender Ferry Bridge, a steel pony truss bridge with a timber deck over the Sacramento River.
