Work Begins At Jibboom Span

Long-awaited work has begun on the historic Jibboom Street Bridge, which was built in 1931.

The bridge, which serves as a route into Discovery Park from downtown, is scheduled to be closed for six months. The work includes replacing the metal decking and repainting the distinctive green truss bridge, which spans the American River just west of Interstate 5.

Discovery Park will stay open during construction, county parks officials said. The access point is on the north side of the river, off Garden Highway. Bicyclists who use the bridge for commutes into downtown or for access to the American River recreation trail are being advised to use access routes to the east at Northgate Boulevard, Highway 160, and the bike bridge near the Blue Diamond plant.
