One of the most unique concrete arch bridges in the country, this bridge was designed to look like roman aqueducts with multiple levels of arches. The bridge crosses the creek before entering a tunnel immediately south of the bridge, making for an interesting crossing experience. The setting of the bridge is unusual as well since views of the bridge give the appearance of the bridge being in a forest, but in fact the bridge is on the very edge of the forest and looks right out at the ocean. Although the bridge was designed to give the appearance of a multi-level arch bridge, the approach spans, as well as the deck spans between columns of the main arch span, function as concrete t-beam bridges, with the arch-shaped fascia in front.
