RIO VISTA - Earlier this month, the Rio Vista Drawbridge in the Sacramento Delta suffered a failure of the gearbox that raises and lowers the bridge deck. Both commercial shipping and vehicular traffic in the Delta rely on the bridge. In this Caltrans News Flash, District 4 Public Information Branch Chief Vince Jacala shows us how the Caltrans engineering team is manually raising and lowering the bridge until permanent repairs are made.
