Pacific Coast Aggregates Bridge

Looking downstream from the old red bridge, you'll see the Sunrise Bridge, constructed in 1955 to enable commuters to live in east Sacramento and reach their jobs at Aerojet and Mather Field. Past that and a little further downstream is the PCA Bridge (Pacific Coast Aggregates) built by the rock crushing plant when the County put a load limit on the old red bridge and PCA lost their ability to send product north. When the Parkway was extended into the area, the County converted the bridge into a bicycle and pedestrian bridge and renamed it "Jim's Bridge"after Jim Jones, a local advocate for the Parkway.

At this point, go back up Bridge Street to Capitola.
