Notes
Survey number HAER CA-113
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (N835; N97).
Building/structure dates: 1931 initial construction
Significance: Like several other park road bridges built in the 1920s and 1930s, the South Fork Merced River Bridge was a "rustic style" structure characterized by massive log stringers which gave the bridge the appearance of being of log construction. The decorative timber trim has been removed, and the bridge no longer retains its architectural integrity.
