Long Description:
The green steel Schuyler Heim bridge was built in 1949. It is part of the Terminal Island Frwy, and connects State Route 47 to Route 103, Connecting Terminal Island to Long Beach. It spans the Cerritos Channel, which connects the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. The vertical deck is made of steel grate and because of heavy truck traffic, a proposal has been made to replace it with a standard high bridge.... so see it while you can.
