Work was started by Johnson Western Company on the substructure and approaches in March 1947. The Judson, Pacific-Murphy Corporation was the contractor for the superstructure. Cost was one-half million dollars.
Opening of the bridge ended the state operated trans-river ferry that began May 1941. This was the last state operated ferry on the Sacramento River and the ferry was sent down river to Stockton to serve as a standby unit in the San Joaquin Delta region.
