Another sign of recovery after 2014’s 6.0-magnitude North Bay earthquake: Thursday’s reopening of the Oakville Cross Bridge near Yountville.
The old bridge was demolished. The new one’s opening means residents no longer have to go miles out of their way to get over the Napa River.
The old bridge developed huge cracks in the earthquake and was then closed to cars, bikes, and pedestrians.
The new version is not only structurally sound, it's more efficient: two lanes wide, instead of one lane.
