|December 2009 (36.97000 Degrees, -122.02278 Degrees) Laurel Street Bridge
This bridge was built in 1968 and got a $5 million seismic retrofit in 1999. The piers and foundations were strengthened, the soil was mitigated to prevent liquefaction, and the bridge was decorated with new lampposts and railings to match the other river crossings. In fact, this bridge looks almost identical to the Water Street Bridge across the San Lorenzo River that we will be visiting shortly.
