Bulk Rate PAID San Francisco, Calif. Permit No. 4123 Unusual erection procedure of Pope Bridge in Napa hills, California, con- sisted of cantilevering welded plate girders over piers, then raising girders from valley floor with the aid of a guy-derrick poised on the end of the cantilever. Engineers thus avoided using falsework in steeper slopes of the Canyon. The Pope and its neigh- boring Putah Creek highway bridges were fabricated and erected by Beth- lehem Pacific. The structures which span 165-foot deep valleys were de- signed by the Bridge Department of the California Division of Highways for the County of Napa. The General Contractor was John C. Gist Co. of Sacramento. Hanging in mid-air is a 37-ton welded plate girder fabricated at the Alameda Works of BETHLEHEM PACIFIC COAST STEEL CORPORATION General Offices: San Francisco MR. CLIFTON J.
