It’s hard to believe it was a year and a half ago since I was last in Sacramento. I am always amazed at how quickly time flies by. I got up before the sunrise and walked about 1.5 miles to this location. I think the only other people up at that time were the homeless men, women and children of Sacramento. I left the homeless alone and they did the same with me. It was a peaceful morning and I got some great photos.
Crossing the Sacramento River, the Tower Bridge is 737 feet long with a vertical lift for boat traffic. The towers are 160 feet tall and the bridge was made with four lanes for cars and one large center lane for trains. Construction of the bridge started in 1911 and was completed in 1933. In 1982, it was added to the National Register of Historic Places. Today the bridge is only used for vehicle and pedestrian traffic.
