Laying claim to the longest single span wooden bridge of America was recently reaffirmed. Measurements of the old Blenheim Bridge in southeastern New York, confirmed the Bridgeport Bridge has the record by a fraction of a foot. The construction of this historic California landmark is quite a remarkable achievement. Crossing the chilly waters of the South Fork of the Yuba river, the (Nyes Crossing) bridge was built in 1862. Serving the nearby Silverland Gold Mines of Virginia City, the bridge was an important link of a Virginia Turnpike Company toll road.
