Sacramento boat/bridge question?
I am making a project (fake project) and I want to know a few boat heights that way I can find how high the bridge im making needs to be. The boats will be passing through the sacramento/american river.
I also need to know a minimum clearence.
Help is greatly appreciated.

The bridge in 45 Auto's answer is at Old Town Sacramento on the Sacramento River. I've stayed at that dock pictured under the bridge. The actual height varies with the seasons, but most barges and river tugs can clear the bridge in the summer months at 30' from water to lowest portion of the bridge. However that's not true with all bridges along that river. There are some bridges that have to be raised if a vessel is over 15' above the water.Source(s): Been there and done it.

a simple search on Sacramento delta bridges yields a plethora of information.
