Durgan Bridge – Downieville CA

Description

Federal efforts provided $35,000 for the construction of the bridge and approaches to the Durgan bridge, a pratt through truss bridge over the North Fork of the Yuba River on Nevada Street in the former mining town of Downieville. The project was launched as part of a group of federally funded infrastructure projects in 1935 but it was not built until 1938.
