Brother Gaines (City of San Diego, Senior Bridge Engineer) Builder of Bridges
The Georgia Street Bridge over University Avenue has been seismically retrofit and rehabilitated under the City of San Diego’s Public Works Bridge Section. The bridge and retaining walls were originally constructed in 1914 and are listed as a Historic Resource on the National Register and City of San Diego’s Historic Places. The project has taken 2 years and $10 million to complete with Reyes Construction as the General Contractor. The City team was led by Senior Bridge Engineer Frank Gaines, P.E. (Cal Theta ’83) and Resident Engineer Isac Vallejo.
The remaining work is to apply a concrete sealer/stain and anti-graffiti treatment to the walls and bridge.
