Construction underway for new $1 billion bridge at Port of Long Beach
Construction is underway for a new bridge at Port of Long Beach in California, replacing the Gerald Desmond Bridge, which is expected to enhance the trade system and improve an important transportation corridor for California, post completion.
Featuring twin 50-storied high towers, the new bridge will be one of the tallest cable-stayed bridges in the US and the first of its kind in California.
The new bridge will raise the clearance over the channel from 155 feet to 200 feet, allowing the world’s largest ships to enter the Port’s inner harbour. Providing a new feature to the Southern California skyline, the new bridge will include a bike path, pedestrian path and scenic observation decks 200 feet above the water.
The replacement project will allow the Gerald Desmond Bridge to remain in use while the new one is erected adjacent to it. The new bridge is among $4.5 billion in current and planned improvements to further modernise the Port of Long Beach.
This project is a joint effort of the California Department of Transportation and the Port of Long Beach. A joint venture team headed by Shimmick Construction Co. Inc., FCC Construction S.A. and Impregilo S.p.A. (SFI) is the primary contractor for the design and construction of the replacement bridge.
