Drawbridge at China Basin


A small drawbridge at Mission Creek attracted a lot of attention yesterday when it spent most of the day pointing up into the air!

The bridge, for trains, vehicles and pedestrians, was having a thorough check up from a team of city workers. What one workman described as 'heavy duty maintenance,' everything from bolts upwards.

Residents were fascinated to see the bridge raised as this is an infrequent event. The creek is a home to houseboats and usually attracts only canoeists and kayakers that sail under it.

The city workman said the work had been scheduled for two months ago but was delayed due to the extensive Muni work that they had also done.
