17th St Bridge

Built: 1928

Type: Concrete Tee Beam

Length: 82 feet

This short bridge crosses over E St as it becomes a ramp to SB I-5 in downtown. Exactly why it was built is still something of a mystery.

Deck view. As this bridge serves little traffic, a wider deck wasn't considered warranted.
