Inventory: Lists | Log | References | Condensed | Search

This is a list of all 2 bridges from the suspension bridge inventory crossing Truckee River. Please note that different rivers with the same name will be grouped together. For example, selecting 'Bear Creek' shows bridges across several different Bear Creeks. Also, similarly named rivers are grouped separately. For example, 'River Dee' (UK) bridges are grouped separately from 'Dee River' (Australia) bridges. Wherever you see a "Bridgemeister ID" number you can click it to isolate the bridge on its own page.

  • Crosses some a spillway just east of I-80 just before I-80 crosses from California to Nevada. North of Mystic in Sierra County.
  • Jan Claire sends observations about the structure the bridge crosses: "The dam is a diverter. Water from the Truckee river is diverted into a canal which runs over to Verdi, Nevada at which point it is pumped up and over a hill and down into another river. Because this dam does not appear on the California Department of Water Resources inventory, I assume it is a long-ago-grandfathered dam operated under treaty with the state of Nevada for irrigation purposes. Satellite photos show this diverter-canal runs through what may still be, or probably was, farmland west of Verdi."
