Shoreline Foundation finishes dismantling the old Lake Worth Bridge

July 06, 2011 04:05PM

A crew of five from the Shoreline Foundation has now completed the dismantling of the condemned old Lake Worth Bridge, a five week process, according to the Palm Beach Post. The 1,400-foot-long bridge was completed in 1937.

Spectators watched a 138-ton capacity crane work off of a barge to demolish the structure when its removal began in mid-April.

A fishing pier, floating dock, canoe/kayak launch and boardwalk will take the bridge’s place as part of the Snook Islands Natural Area, a restoration project of the Lake Worth Lagoon, the Post said. [Palm Beach Post]
