Public Meeting for Alamo Pintado Pedestrian Bridge

Ah, in Los Olivos! This one piqued my curiosity, and after some searching I finally found it. This 1912 bridge is parallel to Hwy.154, crossing Alamo Pintado Creek (34.667748, -120.119700 on gMaps, with Street Views from 154). The bridge supports are shot and it's sinking, so they're going to shore up the creek banks and replace the bridge. Caltrans posted a video that shows how it looks now (at 3:35, 3:50, 12:00 and a few other places on the 20 minute video); and one idea of how the replacement bridge would look (at 7:00 on the 20 minute video). There's a good article in the 9/9/21 Santa Ynez Valley Star - https://www.santaynezvalleystar.com/caltrans-seeking-public-comment-on-removing-old-pedestrian-bridge-in-los-olivos/ and the Caltrans video is at this link - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iHlaSxiUW6o
