San Francisco’s small bridges in line for maintenance

While their repairs aren’t likely to generate as much publicity as the major renovation work at the Bay Bridge, 18 small spans in San Francisco are set to undergo important maintenance upgrades.

The 18 spans, all longer than 20 feet and all located within San Francisco limits, will be upgraded as part of a $7 million preventive maintenance program that is being administered by The City’s Department of Public Works.

Over 88 percent of the funding for the program is coming from federal grants, but The City still needs to chip in a local match. On Wednesday, the Board of Supervisor’s Budget and Finance Committee will vote on releasing $48,787 in city funds for the first phase of the project.

All of bridges will be repaired by 2012, including seven set for upgrades this fiscal year.
