Why must the D Street Bridge be closed during the Turning Basin dredging project?

The D Street Bridge must be raised to accommodate barges as they move sediment from the Turning Basin to a permitted site in San Pablo Bay. Frequent raising/lowering of the bridge would strain the bridge’s electrical/mechanical system. Keeping the Bridge raised will help us avoid a system overload and possible long term bridge shutdown. In our effort to dredge the Turning Basin, let’s not break the Bridge!
