I brought some history back

Concrete arch bridge over Gold Creek on Orangevale Avenue in Folsom
Location, Folsom, Sacramento County, California
Status, Open to traffic
History, Built 1915
Design, Concrete open spandrel deck arch.
Dimensions, Length of largest span: 100.1 ft.
Total length: 161.1 ft., Deck width: 18.0 ft.



Back in 04, they wanted to tear it down and the community went up in arms.

According to the Heritage Preservation League of Folsom, the historic Orangevale Bridge, an open spandrel arch, is under fire to possibly be destroyed in order to be replaced by a UCEB. Efforts are underway to fight the destruction and preseve the historic bridge by converting it to single lane traffic. The bridge was on the declaration route of the Lincoln Highway.

The public is invited to a 2nd public workshop to discuss the repair/replacement of the Orangevale Avenue bridge in Folsom.
The first meeting was held January 6th, 2004.
Comments and responses are posted on the City’s website.
The City of Folsom, in coordination with Caltrans and the Federal Highway Administration, will repair or replace the Orangevale Avenue Bridge over Gold Creek. The existing bridge is a narrow, single lane structure that is not wide enough to meet current safety standards.
The new bridge will accommodate two lanes of traffic, bike lanes, and a sidewalk on one side. The project is part of the City’s effort to bring older bridges up to current safety standards. Public input is an important part of the process.





So they instead closed it down to a single lane and put in some stop signs. They were doing some kind of activities with heavy equipment down in the canyon today. In 08, this story;

The Orangevale Avenue Bridge, a 90-year old bridge just off of American River Canyon Drive, may have dodged the wrecking ball. The bridge has been made eligible for a state historic registry, since it was part of the original Lincoln Highway. Because of this, the city is considering alternative designs that do not require the demolition of the existing bridge, though it will likely need to be widened to be brought up to modern standards.

Well, first you need somewhere o the internet to "host" your pic. As an old dinosaur and cheapskate I use Photobucket which is free.

Then I "upload" the pic from my computer to Photobucket following the fairly simple instrutions. Good luck with it.

Once the pic's out there in Pb it is given a code which I copy and paste here, see below. Other hosting companies are available.

Foot bridge over a creek near home...East, TN. I thought about riding up the stairs, but then I'd have to ride down.

Construction over kill??? Typical for TVA. This bridge is just to continue a walking trail system along Lake Tellico.

Tower Bridge

Opened December 15, 1935






Crosses the Sacramento River connecting West Capitol Avenue and Tower Bridge Gateway in West Sacramento with the Capitol Mall in Sacramento near Old Sacramento. It was the first vertical lift bridge in California which permits cargo and passenger ship traffic under the bridge.
The lift towers that permit large ships to cross under the bridge are 160 feet tall. The bridge was originally built with four traffic lanes for cars with one large center lane for trains which no longer run on the bridge. Today, traffic is limited to autos and pedestrian crossing.
The bridge, which is on the National Register of Historic Places is painted gold, emblematic of its Gold Rush days.
The bridge is repainted about every 30 years.
