Cabrillo Bridge opens

The Cabrillo Bridge in Balboa Park reopened Monday, five months after it went down for $38 million in refurbishing and retrofitting.

Tthe project is expected to make the bridge more resilient in case of an earthquake.

The bridge was supposed to reopen in April but was delayed until Monday, because construction crews kept finding debris and water inside the bridge.

The Cabrillo Bridge, also known as the Laurel Street Bridge, was built in 1915. Integrated mesh steel was used to retrofit the span's seven pedestals.
