The bridge was originally installed by Teichert Aggregates as a conveyor belt to transport mined gravel to a processing site. It is now under Yolo County jurisdiction and in the future may be converted into a walking bridge to connect public access sites on either side the creek as part of the Cache Creek Parkway Plan. The bridge is currently inaccessible by foot, please refrain from trespassing. 12/11/19
