Tower Bridge repairs: ‘No indication that these have ever been replaced’
The Tower Bridge in Sacramento will remain open Sunday due to a forecast of inclement weather, California Department of Transportation officials said, postponing planned work to upgrade the 83-year-old structure.
The bridge was originally scheduled for a full closure Sunday, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., because of intensive construction work that requires a helicopter to lift bridge parts.
Caltrans has been working to update the Tower Bridge’s electrical and mechanical systems since late October, citing aging parts in the vertical-lift bridge, The Bee previously reported.
Caltrans said in a tweet that it would provide a new bridge closure date once it is determined.
