Notes
Survey number HAER CA-142
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (N733).
Building/structure dates: 1923 initial construction
Significance: Oak Grove Bridge, an arched bridge made of reinforced concrete, is situated on Mineral King Road, which has long served as an approach road to Sequoia National Park. The modern quality of this bridge contrasts greatly with those located within the park. As part of an effort to create an aesthetic in which structures fit in with the natural environment, the National Park Service had bridges built with a rustic quality. This was achieved through the choice of building materials: Lodgepole and Clover Creek Bridges (HAER Nos. CA-140A and CA-140B) had a stone veneer over a reinforced concrete arch design, while the Marble Fork Bridge (HAER No. CA-141) had a deck-truss log design.
