Photographer's Note

This photo was taken under the Antioch Bridge at waters edge looking up. This photo was taken from my old file, and was taken before I became a member of TE. I am compiling all my photos of my city, Antioch.

The Antioch Bridge crosses the San Joaquin River linking Antioch, California with Sacramento County, California. The bridge is signed as part of California State Route 160.

The current bridge was completed and opened to traffic in 1978. It measures 1.8 miles (2.9 km). It replaced the original structure that was built in 1926 by Aven Hanford and Oscar Klatt, who went on to build the original span of the Carquinez Bridge. The original lift span bridge was plagued with problems throughout its lifetime. Heavy traffic could cross it at no more than 15 miles per hour (25 km/h), and its narrow shipping canal led to collisions in 1958, 1963 and 1970.
