September Engineers News

August 2014This month, we showcase the giant Antlers Bridge project in Redding District 70, which is one of the largest structures ever to be built in Northern California. When finished, it will be 1,942 feet long and 104 feet wide.

Right in line with this project’s magnitude is the High-Speed Rail (HSR) project, which recently began in Fresno with major demolition and test-pile work. Click here for more photos on the HSR test-pile and demo work.

Local 3 also enjoys some smaller projects throughout our jurisdiction, including one in Yuba City District 60 that involves some very specialized precision.

There’s something for everyone in this month’s magazine, including a special feature on hard hats. We wear them every day, but we shouldn’t take them for granted. These lifesavers had an interesting journey that spans several decades.
