The U.S. Navy Commodore Schuyler F. Heim Bridge (SR-47/SR-103) is one of three bridges (Vincent Thomas and Gerald Desmond) that serves Los Angeles and Long Beach and their corresponding ports, tenants, and motorists. Along with the Heim’s 67-years of service, several Caltrans employees have spent large portions of their careers lifting and maintaining the bridge.
Now that the bridge is slowly being cut to pieces and being hauled away as scrap metal, many of our maintenance, environmental, and engineering employees are sad to this magnificent steel structure go. We hope you enjoy.
