The next road bridge is several miles further downstream. The Avondale Bridge was built in 1962 with a precast voided slab superstructure on three column bents and seat-type abutments. A water main carried by this bridge broke during the earthquake washing out the embankment and so they are beginning to roll out an inflatable cofferdam on the opposite bank to repair the abutment.
