Nevada County, California Bridges: South Yuba River Bridges (1)

December 2012 (39.2977 Degrees, -121.0890 Degrees) South Yuba River Bridges
State Route 49 goes sharply west just north of Nevada City and then crosses the South Fork of the Yuba River on a new (1993) prestressed concrete bridge. The original (1922) reinforced concrete arch bridge has been turned into a footbridge and part of a hiking trail in the South Yuba River State Park.
Just as the North Fork of the American River dominates many aspects of life in Placer County so the South Fork of the Yuba River dominates the west side of Nevada County (west of the Sierra Nevada Mountains).

We'll take a closer look at the old and new bridges in the next few blogs.
