Bixby Creek Bridge Big Bur California by Robert Swetz

 


 The Bixby Creek Bridge located in Big Sur California is a very famous bridge that was build in 1932.
 Residents of the Big Sur area were virtually cut off during winter due to the often impassable Old Coast Road that led 11 miles inland. 
At its completion, the bridge was built under budget for $199,861 (equivalent to $3.5 million in 2015) and was the longest concrete arch span at 360 feet on the California State Highway System.
It is one of the tallest single-span concrete bridges in the world.
The Bixby Creek Bridge is one of the most photographed bridges in the state of California

Structures of this nature are often taken for granted.  The engineering and planning for something like this amazes me.  One need but look at your pics and say 'how'?   mark

Hi Robert

 The engineers alone to plan this bridge today would've been in excess of $5 million.  That was really a shovel ready project. That is astounding Robert Vegas Bob Swetz ....
