A 9000 pound steel support was hoisted into place on the South end of the Historic Covered Bridge at South Yuba River State Park in Northern California. A similar support structure will be added on the North end and then a series of cables and girders will combine to stabilize the integrity of the bridge. The stabilization is phase one of a two phases. The restoration process will be phase two. The bridge, built in 1862, is the longest single span wooden covered bridge remaining in the world.
