Caltrans: Old Antlers Bridge Demolition
Months and sometimes years of planning go into the many California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) projects.

And timing can be critical. But what happens when Mother Nature gets involved? This February 2017 Caltrans News Flash shows how Caltrans recently had to quickly switch gears when the first demolition of the old Antlers Bridge in Shasta County was affected by severe weather that produced an unexpected outcome.
