Standing on the dock at the terminal he said he was shocked to observe the Bay Bridge in the distance, as one huge steel deck section had collapsed and was resting on the lower deck• This event marked the beginning of Short's experience with the story of the replacement of the old bridge with a spectacular new one -- the eastern span replacement• The eastern span replacement was a tremendous project that involved a multitude of engineers and contractors. At the very beginning Short was involved with the underpinning of the toll plaza approach ramp, and he said he remained involved in the project via his work, personal interest and professional connections. "I have been very interested in this world-class project and followed it closely over the 10 years it took to complete it. Having long-term friendships with several of the contractors helped with obtaining updates on the progress, and I'm excited to share my experience and knowledge with the community," said Short of his upcoming presentation. Short is a registered civil engineer and geotechnical engineer with over 40 years experience in the field of geotechnical engineering on a wide range of public works and private projects• Some of his many design projects include bridges, roadways, pipelines, rail projects, freeways, marine container and trucking terminals. Short's presentation will include slides and a question-and-answer period. The Speakers Bureau is a free monthly program presented by the Mohawk Community Resource Center, which is a service of Plumas Rural Services. An RSVP is requested, though not required, and light refreshments will be served. MCRC is located at the junction of highways 89 and 70 near the Corner Barn in Blairsden.
