Sonoma County, California Bridges: Skagg Springs Road Bridge across Warm Springs Creek

September (38.67778 Degrees-123.10000 Degrees) Skagg Springs Road Bridge
Sonoma County becomes remote and mountainous west of the Rockpile Bridge with just a few extremely winding roads. Driving west we arrived at the Skagg Springs Road Bridge (20C0439) across Warm Springs Creek. It is a tall continuous 3-span prestressed concrete box girder bridge on single column bents that was built in 1978. The bridge is 604 ft long with a 234 ft long span over the creek. It's in good condition and carries about 400 vehicles a day.

September 2014 (38.60499 Degrees-122.86044 Degrees) Healdsburg Bridges
This photo shows the Healdsburg Railway and Highway Bridges from the shoulder of US-101. The photo also shows how California's drought has affected the Russian River. Both bridges are currently closed but hopefully they can be returned to service soon.
