The bridge, which will be constructed using steel girders and extend 320 feet across the canyon, will replace the structure from 1967 that was badly damaged by winter storms and demolished in March.

The bridge will cost about $24 million and is expected to be open to the public in mid-to-late September, Caltrans said.
