Van Duzen River Bridge at Highway 36 and Highway 101 (1914)1283 viewsNote the wagon and team crossing the bridge. The Redwood Highway is now called Highway 101 and crosses in almost this exact spot today, except it's now four lanes and vehicles are travelling at 65 MPH. This was locally known as the Alton Bridge.
This county bridge, built in 1901 by the San Francisco Bridge Company, consisted of two steel Camelback truss spans with wooden trestle approaches, and carried a narrow, 16-foot roadway. By the early 1920s, the steel spans were badly corroded from the salt-laden coastal air, and the wooden deck and approach spans were rotted. It was replaced in 1924.
