The I Street Bridge is a historic metal truss swing bridge located on I Street in Sacramento, California crossing the Sacramento River connecting Yolo County with Sacramento County. Built in 1911 this historic bridge has a vertical clearance of 14 feet 8 inches (4.47 m) and was originally part of State Route 16. It also carries two walkways on each side of the roadway.

The lower level of the bridge provides rail access to Sacramento from points south and west; the upper level provides highway access.

It was built to replace an 1867 timber Howe truss swing span bridge, which also carried both railroad and road traffic.[2]
