I added a series of photos that I took while at work waiting for repairs to be completed on the bridge after a high loaded truck hit the bridge.
I took photos 13-16 during the test opening after the repairs were completed. It is quite an experience riding one of these massive movable bridges while they are in action. Photos 17-21 are looking at some of the swing components and inside the central pier.
This just proves never leave your camera at home, something amazing might happen.
Just finished a trip down the PCH. A pretty good photo spot is in the mornings from the RR bridge just east of the highway bridge. Accessible by a city street which goes under the RR near the south shore of the river. There's a stairway (!) leading to the bridge deck and a walkway clear to the end of the fixed portion of the drawbridge, which is usually open.
