Chinatown bridge fixed!
by Larry Geller
After posting the previous article, which included a picture of the pedestrian bridge in Chinatown needing repair, we went over there this afternoon for a dim sum lunch. And guess what—the bridge railing has been carefully plastered and covered with a shiny new, durable-looking coating that makes it look as good as new. Maybe better.
I don’t know if the rusted rebar inside the railing continues to expand or not. If not, the coating appears to be waterproof and should protect the bridge railing for many years. There were no paint spatters—the repair looks very professionally done.
I couldn’t find any reference to the repair in any recent Downtown Neighborhood Board minutes, so for the moment, I have no information about it.
