MOSQUITO ROAD BRIDGE
The Mosquito Road Bridge spanning the South Fork of the American River replaces a one-lane timber suspension bridge built-in 1939. The three-span post-tensioned concrete box girder bridge has a 536 ft (163.4 m) main span with 322 ft (98.2 m) end spans. The bridge, which is constructed using the cast-in-place balanced cantilever segmental method, varies in depth from 12 ft (3.66 m) to 30 ft (9.15 m) and is supported by two hollow main piers consisting of 5 ft (1.52 m) confined corner octagons joined by 2 ft (0.61 m) wide walls. The columns rise nearly 200 ft (61 m) above the CIDH supported footings, and the roadway reaches heights of approximately 375 ft (114 m) above the river.
