This bridge is very near the Russian Gulch Bridge and was completed the same year.
From the Mendocino Beacon in 2014: “Three bridges — the Jack Peters Creek Bridge, the Russian Gulch Bridge and the Jughandle Creek Bridge — were built as part of an equally heroic effort, the Works Progress Administration under President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. The WPA also brought Cotton Auditorium and the Mendocino Woodlands Camp to the coast.” According to the Ukiah Dispatch Democrat, the cost of the bridge was $25,000.
