|November 2012 (38.922 Degrees, -121.039 Degrees) Foresthill Bridge
We haven't visited the Foresthill Bridge in a few years (since my blog of October 2009) so I drove up today to take some new pictures. As you can see, parts of the bridge are now covered in a tarp as they remove the lead-based paint and do other work to the bridge including a seismic retrofit. The estimate on all this work was $70 million and the winning bid came in at about $55 million. We'll take a closer look at the bridge and the repairs during the next few days.
