[The 1962 (rehabilitated 1991) road bridge itself is notable because it is a long continuous truss bridge.]
"Originally built for the Southern Pacific Railroad in 1929-1930, this is the last simple truss railroad bridge built in the United States at a new location (i.e. where none had existed before)."Some big boats must use this straight to have a lift span with an elevation of 82 feet. I could not find the elevation for the old road bridge and I count not find a web page fore the new road bridge.

Maybe the writer meant pin connected - 1930 would be getting a bit late for a pin connected bridge.
