Gerald Desmond Bridge replacement in Long Beach
« on: November 30, 2019, 04:22:18 AM »

Here's a video showing construction of the Gerald Desmond Bridge replacement in Long Beach.  I can remember when they were building the Desmond Bridge back in '67-'68, using the ground level pontoon bridge to get to Terminal Island from downtown LB.  That was a big time for Long Beach, as the Queen Mary arrived in late '67.

^ When was that video shot? Looks like at least several months' more work before the new bridge opens to traffic.
