One of the primary trucking routes on the West Coast is

bringing in a major haul. California’s I-5 is getting a new

1,942-ft-long bridge. The structure, designed for a 100-year

life, will be made up of 13 million lb of steel and more

than 36,000 cu yd of concrete. The project also includes

upgrades to a half-mile section of I-5. Non-standard curves

to the south will be corrected, making it a safer route for

motorists. The bridge is expected to be complete in the

fall of 2016 when the current 1,300-ft-long steel deck truss

bridge will be demolished and removed.
