New bridge built on 1940 piers. Engineers faced two major challenges in building the second (current) bridge. First, they had to explain the failure of the 1940 bridge, and then design a new one to withstand the same fate. Next, they had to determine if remnants of the old bridge - the piers - could be used. The two main piers were undamaged and were used to support the second bridge with only minor modifications to the concrete pedestals.
