Photo: A look at the expansion joints

Posted by Cory Tolbert Haik

This picture was taken by John Hanna, a structural engineer overseeing the I-5 project. It is of one of the expansion joints that is being repaired:

Hanna had this to say:

We are ahead of schedule and the delays will soon be over and the roadway bridges will be safer than before. Please know that if it wasn't for the hard work performed by the union Ironworkers, this project would not be ahead of schedule. This coming labor day, when the I-5 freeway is open and safe, please take a moment to thank these dedicated tradesmen and women.
