Fanny Bridge

Bridge in Tahoe City

Just south of the always-jammed Hwy 89/28 traffic stoplight junction, the Truckee River flows through dam floodgates and passes beneath this bridge, cutely named for the most prominent feature of people leaning over the railings to look at fish (in American slang, ‘fanny’ means your rear end). The side facing the lake displays historical photos and hydrological facts.
