Shasta County, California Bridges: Doney Creek Bridges (2)

April 2015 (40.88221 Degrees-122.38774 Degrees) UP Railway Bridge across Doney Creek 
Continuing north along the Sacramento River we arrived at the Doney Creek road and rail bridges. We last studied these bridges from the east side when we were standing on the Antlers Creek Bridge (which can be seen through the truss members of the railroad bridge.) It's an interesting vantage point to see truss from the approach of an adjacent road bridge. Note how the Warren truss tapers at the ends. Perhaps the taper was to match plate girder end spans which were eventually replaced by abutments on higher embankments.
