Highway 101 at Red Mountain Creek
In 1935, a bridge was built over Red Mountain Creek in rural Mendocino county south of Piercy along the old Redwood Highway (a piece of which appears to be renamed “Rosewarne Road”).
The funds were granted by the federal government – probably the Bureau Public Roads – under the New Deal to the state of California Department of Highways.
Later, Interstate 101 was built along the same route and the old bridge was removed.
