Garden Bar 'Sanford Crossing' at Wolf Creek


The Nevada County Department of Public Works completed the widening of the Garden Bar Road Bridge at Wolf Creek just east of Sanford Road. The bridge widening increased the radius of the curve approaching the bridge, where the barrier required frequent repairs from impacts.

There is another bridge on Garden Bar Road over Wolf Creek approximately 1.7 miles southwest of this location that was also widened.
