Demolition of the Coyote Creek Bridge west of I-5 in Cerritos is nearly complete. The overhead across the creek bed has been removed. The contractor has removed debris from the creek bed and separated the concrete debris from the rebar. The concrete was crushed into aggregate and will be used as base for new freeway lanes. The rebar will be recycled. Workers are now prepping the creel bed for pile driving. Videos below from August 6 and August 13:
