Here at the south end of San Fernando, the Pacoima Creek Bridge crosses a small, now channelized creek. This bridge is a concrete arch bridge with two spans. Originally built in 1925, it was widened to four lanes in 1940. The original light posts may have been removed at that time.

South of the bridge near Pierce St, a new business is using a US 99 shield.
