Bridges over the Noyo River at Fort Bragg

I drive over the bridge over the Noyo River probably every day of the week. The bridge we now drive on was built since we moved here in 2000. But what of the ones before?

I knew that before there was a town of Fort Bragg there was a community on the side of the Noyo River. Over the years there has been a ferry and a number bridges over the Noyo. I have been collecting Noyo River pics for a while and today I sorted them out. I think I have pics of all of the bridges. I think. If I am missing any or have the captions wrong I’d appreciate hearing about it.
