Weekend Unveiling of Union-built 6th Street Bridge
Union Carpenters were front and center during this weekend’s highly anticipated 6th Street Bridge grand opening. Over the course of the weekend’s festivities, Carpenters were on-site to celebrate their massive achievement, with some our sisters even being interviewed by the press. Click here to check out the full footage!

More than 400 Carpenters worked on the 6th Street Bridge during the 6 years of construction including the most women of any Public Works project. The bridge is 3,500 feet long and used 8,250 tons of steel and 15,000 feet of cable to build it.

The 6th Street Bridge, an iconic LA landmark past and present, provides yet another avenue of access into the ever-expanding Downtown Los Angeles Area. HUGE congratulations to all the members who took part in building history!
