Main Street Bridge - Temecula, CA, USA

The Main Street Bridge over Murrieta Creek in Old Town Temecula was built in 1945.  The concrete and wooden slab-type bridge was typical for that era and remains relatively sturdy.  It is scheduled to be replaced sometime late in 2011 with a steel-truss-type bridge that will not require support columns in the creek.  The present bridge has an extremely narrow pedestian sidewalk.  The new bridge will have a wider sidewalk with a barrier separating it from traffic.

Located on Main Street between Pujol Street and Front Street.  Caltrans Bridge Number 56C0227.
