Oroville Bidwell Bar Suspension Bridge (0128)

Oroville Bidwell Bar Suspension Bridge (0128)
Bidwell Bar Suspension Bridge on Lake Oroville. The bridge was dedicated in 1965, the Lake Oroville reservoir is part of the State Water Project. The reservoir provides water for the California Aqueduct that supplies agricultural and urban needs; the reservoir is also connected to a hydro-electric facility and provides flood control and recreation. Note the solid line on the plaque that graphically depicts the flow of water from north to south.
