I’ve slowly been working on adding more pages to my Historic Bridges of Southern California section. Los Angeles County is next and is being worked on now. While the format is still a bit “fluid”, the page should be up soon. Look to the main Historic Bridges section for updates in the next couple weeks.
In the Belltown area of Riverside, CA, I found a rather interesting concrete roadway on 24th St. It appears to be a part of a former alignment of either Rubidoux Blvd, Market Street, or combination of the two. It dates to August 1931 and is in very good shape. What I found most interesting was the curve at Avalon St, which seemed to suggest its former importance as a Riverside to Colton roadway.
Why this roadway was built and when it was bypassed may remain a mystery for some time, however, it does show that you can still find old treasures like this in Southern California.
