Bridge Builders – Al Zampa Bridge, CA

Posted by Infra on Wednesday, June 22nd, 2011

In 2003, the longest suspension bridge in the U.S. since the Verrazano Narrows Bridge spanned the Hudson River nearly 40 years before, was completed. History was made when the bridge was named for a construction worker—Al Zampa—who, as an iron worker, had helped construct the original Carquinez Bridge, and had worked on the Golden Gate Bridge, Bay Bridge and every other bridge spanning the San Francisco Bay. Meet Al Zampa’s son and grandsons, all iron workers, as well as numerous other workers who helped build the Al Zampa bridge.
