I was in Reno yesterday, so I detoured a little bit to see if I could find the Galena Forest Bridge, the bridge along I-580 that has been accused of having shoddy materials used in its construction. This bridge is set a little ways in the backcountry, where there are currently no roads. It’s close to Hwy 431, though, and it is visible from populated areas, although it’s hard to get close enough to take good pictures of it. Here are the best I could get, although probably if you got out of the car and hiked for a bit you could see it better.
This is the second-longest bridge on the I-580 project, but not nearly as impressive as the Galena Creek Bridge a few miles south. It looks like it’s quite steep too, as the freeway climbs up to get to the elevation needed to get over the hills.
