Workers have started demolishing an elevated ramp to the Gerald Desmond Bridge in the City of Long Beach in southern California as its taller and stronger replacement comes into being. Construction of the new structure reached a major milestone in December when two 515-foot-tall (157 metre) towers that will hold it aloft were installed. Although it is still able to serve the city a half a century after it was built, the old bridge had come to be called “functionally obsolete” by engineers. Heavy traffic has taken its toll on the massive structure and the latest generation of cargo ships cannot pass under it. The replacement will be handle 68,000 vehicle trips a day and have a span that is 50 feet (15 metres) higher than the old bridge.
