Goodbye to the Gerald Desmond: Long Beach’s old bridge is being demolished

17th July 2022

Following the completion of Los Angeles’ new Gerald Desmond Bridge (now renamed the Long Beach International Gateway) in 2020, the decommissioning of the old Gerald Desmond Bridge has taken a major step forward with the lowering of the main span.

CDC are proud to have been involved in this iconic American project. We have extensive experience on large scale bridge projects including Hong Kong’s Stonecutters and Shenzhen Bay bridges and Montreal’s Champlain Bridge.
