Troubled Bridge III
More pictures from the removal of the railway span of Victoria’s Johnson Street Bridge a few weeks ago. These pictures are taken on three different days. Included is a picture of the smaller crane barge being towed towards the harbour through the Strait of Juan de Fuca – I happened to be taking pictures on the beach in front of Beacon Hill Park when it went past.
Also shown are general and detail views of the bridge and cranes as they get ready to lift the rail span, making the final cut to a girder while holding the whole thing steady. Not long after these pictures were taken the span was lifted and barged over to Point Hope Shipyards where it will be cut up for recycling. Also included are a few of shots of the the rail span is awaiting dismemberment in its current resting place, taken a few weeks ago.
