Photo, Print, Drawing 33. Three bolts on railing outside control house on north tower, one bolt on first handrail post of the north span (bridge is in the open position). As the bridge opens or closes the single bolt on the handrail post moves past the three stationary bolts. This system is used by the bridge operator to judge speed and position of the north span as it opens or closes. Based on these bolts movement of the north span is speeded up or slowed down and the brakes applied during the opening and closing process. View facing east. - Henry Ford Bridge, Spanning Cerritos Channel, Los Angeles-Long Beach Harbor, Los Angeles, Los Angeles County, CA Photos from Survey HAER CA-156
