Notes
  • The bridge pictured here appears to be similar to, but distinct from other Willow Creek vicinity bridges in the inventory. The bridge does not match the bridges in images I have seen of the Salyer and Hawkins Bar bridges. The description on the reverse of this photo is: "Over Trinity River near Willow Creek, Cal. between Arcata and Redding. Nov. 21, 1951." Arcata and Redding are 141 miles apart, so that information is not helpful except to reinforce that the bridge was along the modern-day CA-299 corridor near Willow Creek. This bridge is likely no longer in existence.
