New Galveston Causeway Railroad Lift Bridge 0219121402

New Galveston Causeway Railroad Lift Bridge 0219121402
New Construction
This new lift bridge was very recently put into place to replace the bascule bridge. The existing channel was dangerously narrow and the Coast Guard had ordered it widened. The old causeway structure between the two towers will be removed.

Aggregate Technologies, Inc., a Houston company, is using wire-sawing technology to cut apart remaining sections of the old bridge.

The old bascule bridge will go to California to replace an aging and slow swing bridge over the Petaluma River, www.flickr.com/photos/uscgmaster100ton/6185641397/ [corrected 3/1/2012]
