The Bethel Island bridge is going to be replaced. When we arrived here in 1979 we were told that the bridge was “at the end of its lifespan.” It was built in 1948.
We kept anticipating a replacement any minute.
arrived late last month and action is beginning.
We are going to have a front row seat. We can go out on our balcony and lean way out and see the C.C. Myers yard. Lots of big equipment has arrived.
The bridge replacement is going to take 20 months. I will post pictures of the construction as it goes along.
