A welder uses a torch to cut the beams of the old 2-lane bridge over the San Joaquin River to Rough and Ready Island at the Port of Stockton to dismantle it. The narrow bridge, built in 1950, is being replaced by a new 4-lane bridge, of which 2-lanes have been completed and are in service. Once the old 200-ft long, 18,000-ton bridge has been demolished and cleared away, work on the remaining lanes of the new bridge will commence.
