Dumbarton Bridge Closure: Labor Day Weekend 2012
Jones was on the scene before and during the operation, and
explains how the bridge was lifted several inches with hydraulic
jacks as the weekend began, so crews could install that joint.
Now that the joint has been installed, crews can work below
the bridge deck, and for the next few months, continue the
process of installing 96 seismic bearings to make the Dumbarton
Bridge even safer during a major earthquake.
