Local 433 Ironworkers begin to go Vertical in Long Beach at the Gerald Desmond Bridge Replacement Project in Long Beach, CA. I’ll try to keep a decent photo record of this project as our raising gang erect the Bridge Iron spanning the Pacific Ocean water way in between Long Beach and Terminal Island in the LA/LB Harbor.
