Old Bidwell Bar Bridge

Old Bidwell Bar Bridge

The original Bidwell Bar Bridge is the first steel suspension bridge built in California. It was relocated to its current location in 1965 to avoid inundation by the rising water of Lake Oroville.

Fun Fact: The Bidwell Bar Bridge was transported from New York via Cape Horn in 1853 and construction in Oroville was completed in 1856.
