I don't know how relevant this is to those of you in the West, but I thought this 'infamous' bridge was posted once before here. 


Anyway, for those who have some interest in trains and engineering situations, I thought you might find it interesting to see how a 1/2 Million dollars gets spent to raise it 8".


It appears to be a pretty straight forward process, if you have the right tools.


Sleeping is optional, as it's a bit long (8 minutes or so), but the videographer apparently got permission to shoot a tiny bit of work that most of the public would not so easily get to see.

A local landmark.  We're already wondering what to do with our lives if the 8" lift materially curtails the can opening incidents.
