Workers continue with 1st Street Bridge underside modifications and repairs. They will install edge girders on the south side of the bridge to support structure modifications, allowing more tracks to pass under the bridge.
The work will require a closure of the south sidewalk of 1st Street Bridge between Vignes St. and Mission Road as a public safety precaution. All pedestrians will be detoured to the north sidewalk. The staircase leading up to the south side of the bridge from Santa Fe Av will also be closed.
