Quite impressive architecture. I was surprised that it was as old as it was. It was ahead of it's time. Certainly made for cars from another era.

This bridge survived the historic 1964 flood when others did not. It is used daily by residents to cross the Eel River. Narrow two-laned span is 1,320 ft and has concrete sides.
