Description
Shown in circa 1945 is the North Sacramento viaduct. Built in 1942, the 847,000 dollar project enabled motorists to avoid seasonal flooding and traverse the lowlands north of the American River, and surrounding Sacramento Northern and Western Pacific railways, by way of a raised structure of four lanes and two sidewalks. A further consideration was the need for unfettered access between Sacramento proper and the Sacramento Army Air Depot.
