Name Sought for New Long Beach Port Bridge

California 70th Assembly District Assembly member Patrick O'Donnell is asking the public to weigh in on the newly-built bridge that replaced the former Gerald Desmond span, but the deadline for suggestions is right around the corner.

The cable-stayed $1.47 billion bridge is a major artery for the nation’s trade system and features six traffic lanes, a taller clearance for large cargo ships to pass through and a bike and pedestrian path.

The community feedback will serve as the basis for O’Donnell, who said he plans to introduce legislation for naming the bridge. The deadline to participate in the survey is midnight on May 12.
