Corte Madera Creek
— Ross, California - March 20, 2011 —This structure replaces Bridge No. 27C0071, a contributing element to the Ross Historic Bridges District, eligible for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places. The original bridge was completed on January 13, 1910 as part of a $12,500 bond issue approved by Ross voters 75-7 for the construction of five "concrete bridges to replace the present wooden bridges" throughout the Town. John Buck Leonard, a pioneer and leading designer of reinforced concrete bridges, was the engineer. The four "electroliers," which were installed on the original bridge in 1911, were funded by a donation from Ross resident Harriette deWitte Kittle. They were removed prior to demolition, recast and replaced on the current bridge.
